Mojave: Homebrew, Git and Oh-My-ZSH - [001]

Getting your development environment setup right can be a time saver, since there are so many tools where do you even begin? Let's get started! In this video we'll walk you through setting up the most basic tools to get your Mac prepped for serious development work.

Homebrew

Homebrew is the de-facto standard package manager for mac. We'll use this tool to install all the other tools we'll need. If you get prompted to install the commandline tools go ahead and accept to move forward.

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Git

Git is the distributed version control system we'll use let's set it up with homebrew

brew install git

Oh My ZSH

Bash is fine for most cases but if you want a bit more customizability then you'll need oh-my-zsh.

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)"

That's pretty much it for this first episode.
