These are the 10 tools I installed on day 1 with my Mac. I migrated from LinuxMint 14. Actually there are 11 tools. I didn’t like installing the 11th one but there is no escaping it.
1. Java. The good old java.
3. RubyMine: Ruby Development.
5. MySQL Client: mySQL workbench is free and works great. I have used it on Windows 7 for an year and 2 years on Linux Mint. If you like a Mac only version SequelPro is the best. It is also free. For me the decision was based on familiarity.
Helps you install most of the free software, just like apt-get or yum. Check my other blog entry on how to install it and use it.
Not a perfect replacement for TextPad, Notepad++ or UltraEdit but something better the inbuilt text editor.
Better terminal. I am yet to figure out why it is better than the inbuilt one. But many others suggested this tool… so there must be something …
I run multiple ruby servers and they all need to share cookies this helps.
This is not available in the default brew. Run these commands
brew tap djl/homebrew-apache2
brew install djl/apache2/apache24
This is the image manipulation library we use.
brew install imagamagick
and number 11.
install Apple XCode4 to make other things work, including brew.
