Laptop is a script to set up your Max OS X laptop as a commercetools development machine.


  • A C compiler, such as GCC, LLVM, or Clang.

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

  • bash as your login shell.

To change your login shell run this from a Terminal:

chsh -s /bin/bash


Run the script:

bash < <(curl -s

What it sets up

  • SSH public key (for authenticating with services like Github and Heroku)
  • Homebrew (for managing operating system libraries)
  • Git (for managing versions of code)
  • CURL and WGET (for executing HTTP requests)
  • ACK (for finding things in files)
  • HTOP (for displaying running processes)
  • Apache Bench (for benchmarking servers)

It should take about a couple of minutes for everything to install, depending on your machine.
