Download a compiler from the OS X GCC Installer if you're on Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) or use the Command Line Tools for XCode for Lion (OS X 10.7) or Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).

  • Set zsh as your login shell.

To change your login shell run this from a Terminal:

chsh -s /bin/zsh

Install

Run the script:

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