Laptop is a set of scripts to get your laptop set up as a development machine.

Mac OS X

First, enable FileVault in the Security preference pane. Keep the key someplace safe. Reboot.

Grab XCode from the App Store and install it.

Then, open Terminal and run this one-liner:

bash < <(curl -s

What it sets up

  • Homebrew
  • git, gist and hub for working with Git/GitHub
  • MySQL 5.5.20 (with some good performance configuration for a dev machine)
  • coreutils and findutils with the 'g' prefix (so we don't miss out on Linux goodness)
  • PHP 5.3.10 with MySQL support
    • APC
    • Redis
    • XHProf
    • XDebug
    • memcached
    • Process Control
    • ImageMagick
  • VirtualBox 4.1.12
  • drush
    • feather
    • drush-vagrant
    • grn
    • phpsh (for Drush)
  • phpsh
  • Vagrant (for managing VirtualBox virtual machines)

It should take about 40 minutes for everything to install, depending on your machine.
