smeagol is this ugly dude who led some hobbits around, this is kinda the same thing. Except, like, instead of hiking mordor you're trying to write some open source code on a mac.
FWIW it was easier to just write bash for this at first. Over time I've enjoyed maintaining this with chef more than I think I would've enjoyed straight up shell.
What it does
- Sets you up with homebrew
- Installs git from homebrew, sets up ~/.gitconfig
- Installs postgresql, mysql, redis, memcached and mongodb. They're all configured to run when you login.
- Installs rvm and sets up 1.8.7 to be the default, self manages on 1.9.2 as well
- Installs common ruby gems: rails 3, sinatra, fog, sqlite3, imagemagick, and all that bullshit
- Installs a pretty sane ~/.irbrc
- Installs a node.js development environment with npm
- Installs a modern python environment with pip
- Installs an erlang environment
- Installs MacVim and sets up janus
This is what I run on my system, cinderella is a subset of that.
