How to install therubyracer gem on 10.10 Yosemite?

gem uninstall libv8
brew install v8
gem install therubyracer
gem install libv8 -v '3.16.14.3' -- --with-system-v8

this is the only way it worked for me on 10.10 (ruby 2.1.2)

Or try gem install libv8 -v 'XX.XX.XX' -- --with-system-v8 adding the version of the gem šŸ™‚

UPDATE for Mac OS Catalina:

brew tap homebrew/versions
brew install v8@3.15
brew link --force v8@3.15
gem install libv8 -v 'XX.XX.XX' -- --with-system-v8
gem install therubyracer
