Strap

A script to bootstrap a minimal macOS development system. This does not assume you're doing Ruby/Rails/web development but installs the minimal set of software every macOS developer will want.

Motivation

Replacing Boxen in GitHub with a better tool. This post outlines the problems with Boxen and requirements for Strap and other tools used by GitHub: https://mikemcquaid.com/2016/06/15/replacing-boxen/

Features

  • Disables Java in Safari (for better security)
  • Enables the macOS screensaver password immediately (for better security)
  • Enables the macOS application firewall (for better security)
  • Adds a Found this computer? message to the login screen (for machine recovery)
  • Enables full-disk encryption and saves the FileVault Recovery Key to the Desktop (for better security)
  • Installs the Xcode Command Line Tools (for compilers and Unix tools)
  • Agree to the Xcode license (for using compilers without prompts)
  • Installs Homebrew (for installing command-line software)
  • Installs Homebrew Bundle (for bundler-like Brewfile support)
  • Installs Homebrew Services (for managing Homebrew-installed services)
  • Installs Homebrew Cask (for installing graphical software)
  • Installs the latest macOS software updates (for better security)
  • Installs dotfiles from a user's https://github.com/username/dotfiles repository and runs script/setup to configure them.
  • Installs software from a user's Brewfile in their https://github.com/username/homebrew-brewfile repository or .Brewfile in their home directory.
  • A simple web application to set Git's name, email and GitHub token (needs authorized on any organisations you wish to access)
  • Idempotent

Out of Scope Features

  • Enabling any network services by default (instead enable them when needed)
  • Installing Homebrew formulae by default for everyone in an organisation (install them with Brewfiles in project repositories instead of mandating formulae for the whole organisation)
  • Opting-out of any macOS updates (Apple's security updates and macOS updates are there for a reason)
  • Disabling security features (these are a minimal set of best practises)
  • Add phone number to security screen message (want to avoid prompting users for information on installation)
