Laptop

Laptop is a script to set up a Mac OS X laptop for Rails / Node.js development.

Requirements

  • Install a C compiler, such as GCC, LLVM, or Clang.

Download a compiler from the OS X GCC Installer if you're on Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) or use the Command Line Tools for XCode for Lion (OS X 10.7) or Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).

  • Set zsh as your login shell.

To change your login shell run this from a Terminal:

chsh -s /bin/zsh

Install

Run the script:

zsh < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/MichaelMartinez/laptop/master/mac)

What it sets up

  • Ack for finding things in files
  • Bundler gem for managing Ruby libraries
  • AppFog gem for managing deployed applications
  • Oh-My-Zsh for zsh awesomeness
  • Homebrew for managing operating system libraries
  • Ruby 1.9.3-p125 stable for writing general-purpose code
  • RVM for managing versions of the Ruby programming language
  • SSH public key for authenticating with Github and Heroku
  • Tmux for saving project state and switching between projects

It should take less than 30 minutes to install (depends on your machine).
