Thoughtbot's Ruby guide to Mac OSX development inspired me to create my own set of scripts to install all the common tools I use for development (and in general). This really only applies for when setting up a new Mac but since I wanted to document what tools I installed anyway I loved how easy it is to do that all programmatically using bash.
- Run Software Update
- Install Dropbox
- Install Google Chrome
- Install Things for Mac
- Install purchased apps from Mac App Store
- Install Xcode or CLI tools. Seems for Node.js it is best to install Xcode as for some reason it binds to CoreData.
- Start Xcode -> Preferences -> Downloads -> Install command line tools
git clone https://github.com/javierjulio/laptop.git ~/Projects/laptop && cd ~/Projects/laptop && ./laptop
- Install Heroku Toolbelt
- Install VirtualBox
- Install IE9-10 Virtual Machines
