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



Run the script:

curl -s | sh

What it sets up

  • SSH public key (for authenticating with services like Github and Heroku)
  • Homebrew (for managing operating system libraries)
  • Ack (for finding things in files)
  • Postgres (for storing relational data)
  • ImageMagick (for cropping and resizing images)
  • rbenv (for managing versions of the Ruby programming language)
  • Ruby language (for writing general-purpose code)
  • Bundler gem (for managing Ruby libraries)
  • POW gem (for easily running applications locally)

It should take about 15 minutes for everything to install, depending on your machine.
