Scripts and walkthroughs to bootstrap my new Macs when I get them. This doesn't happen all too often, but in between home, work, desktops, laptops, catastrophic hardware failures, etc., it happens more often than I'd like!
The main things this handles (thus far):
- installs homebrew and list of packages
- rvm, ruby 1.9, rails 3.1 and handy gems
- pip, virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper for python
- node.js and npm package manager
- setup zsh and oh-my-zsh
- in case we aren't used to zsh yet, set up bash nicely too (git prompting, etc)
- textmate plugins, snippits, etc., and solarized color scheme
- a sane vim and macvim configuration, including solarized color scheme
- dotfiles are symlinked and kept in a git repository, so they stay up to date across machines (with provisions for host and os-specific files).
This is still a bit of a mess, but getting cleaned up over time, and is approaching the point where it could be easily customized for your own usage.
Tasks should be runnable at any time, creating/repairing installations when needed, ignoring stuff if already exists.
Get the files
Clone the repository into my home directory:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:mroth/bootstrapper.git ~/.dothome
git clone git://github.com/mroth/bootstrapper.git ~/.dothome
cd ~/.dothome; rake bootstrap
Doing stuff manually instead
rake dotfiles:install which will symlink your .bash_profile and .bashrc to the ones in the repo (as well as any other files). Old files will be backed up with a .old suffix.
Most of the work here happens in
bash/run. Note that host and OS specific files will be sourced in
bash/os/* if they exist, this allows you to have one master repo but still have certain things that only happen on certain OSes or machines.
homebrew and packages
rake homebrew:install which will install homebrew, update the package list, and install the list of packages found in
These tasks are also available individually via
rvm, ruby 1.9.x, rails 3.1, and commonly used gems
TODO: write description of this
python with virtualenv setup
rake python:install. Done.
Came from various places:
- The neat setup scripts used internally by Bitly Ops (want to see them? we're hiring!)
- Paul Hammond's dothome scripts https://github.com/paulhammond/dothome
TODO: Things we need to insure are installed but will be hard to automate
- dev tools
