A shell script to set up a macOS laptop for web and mobile development.
Laptop is a script to set up a macOS laptop for web and mobile development.
It can be run multiple times on the same machine safely. It installs, upgrades, or skips packages based on what is already installed on the machine.
Older versions may work but aren't regularly tested. Bug reports for older versions are welcome.
Download the script:
curl --remote-name https://raw.githubusercontent.com/thoughtbot/laptop/master/mac
Review the script (avoid running scripts you haven't read!):
Execute the downloaded script:
sh mac 2>&1 | tee ~/laptop.log
Optionally, review the log:
Optionally, install thoughtbot/dotfiles.
Your last Laptop run will be saved to
~/laptop.log. Read through it to see if you can debug the issue yourself. If not, copy the lines where the script failed into a new GitHub Issue for us. Or, attach the whole log file as an attachment.
Programming languages, package managers, and configuration:
It should take less than 15 minutes to install (depends on your machine).
~/.laptop.localis run at the end of the Laptop script. Put your customizations there. For example:
brew bundle --file=- <<eof brew eof default_docker_machine docker-machine ls grep if then create virtualbox default fi default_docker_machine_running start fancy_echo up old homebrew formulae ... cleanup cask dotfiles rcup>
Write your customizations such that they can be run safely more than once. See themacscript for examples.
Laptop functions such asfancy_echoandgem_install_or_updatecan be used in your~/.laptop.local.
See the wiki for more customization examples.
Edit themacfile. Document in theREADME.mdfile. Follow shell style guidelines by using ShellCheck and Syntastic.brew install shellcheck
