MacOS Maid

A simple shell script I run to keep my MacBook clean and patched.

What It Does:

  • Prompt For Password If Not Root
  • Deletes Saved Wireless Networks
  • Installs Needed System Updates
  • Empties The Trash
  • Deletes All System Logs
  • Deletes The QuickLook files
  • Updates And Cleans Homebrew
  • Cleans Ruby
  • Removes All Docker Containers
  • Purges Memory
  • Removes known_hosts file.
  • Securely Wipes Free-space

Usage:

  • 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 maid.sh
./maid.sh

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.
