Rootless Ruby Gems

OS X El Capitan (10.11) introduced System Integrity Protection, which prevents any modifications to system files. This includes /usr/bin, where we normally install our gems. Before discovering Homebrew, I’d just turn it off. This is not really what you want to do, as SIP is a great security feature. After a bit of Google searching I finally found the answer within a GitHub issue. I wanted to collect my findings in one place so others don’t have to search very far.
