  • Updates And Cleans Homebrew
  • Cleans Ruby

  • Review for your preferences and comment out options You dont want.
  • Set homessid and workssid variable to stop from deleting those!

To Run:

chmod +x

Important Notice

I likely dont know what I am doing and this could be done faster, better and simpler some other way. These scripts could also break your MacBook and make you cry.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
