Laptop

Install

First, install GCC for OS X. (requires OS X 10.6 or higher)

Then, run this one-liner:

bash < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/mooseknuckles/laptop/master/mac)

What it sets up

  • Homebrew (for managing operating system libraries)
  • QT (used by Capybara Webkit for headless Javascript testing)
  • Postgres (for storing relational data)
  • Redis (for storing key-value data)
  • ImageMagick (for cropping and resizing images)
  • RVM (for managing versions of the Ruby programming language)
  • Ruby 1.9.3 stable (for writing general-purpose code)
  • Bundler gem (for managing Ruby libraries)
  • Rails gem (for writing web applications)
  • Postgres gem (for making Ruby talk to SQL databases)
  • Git Remote Branch gem (for faster git branch creation and deletion)

It should take about 30 minutes for everything to install, depending on your machine.
