My Mac Setup

Getting a new Mac is a lot of fun, but it can be tedious to install all your favourite software packages, especially if you’re a developer who uses lots of them. There’s something to be said for keeping a list of URLs to your usual tools, so that you can set up a development environment faster. Also, who knows - perhaps it would be fun in the future to look back at your toolset and reminisce.

Without further ado, here is the software I’ve installed on my work-issued MacBook Pro:

The Basics

Homebrew Packages

Assorted Productivity

Web Browsers

(I hardly use the non-Chrome browsers now that Web Inspector is so good, but you’ve gotta keep them around.)

Miscellaneous Steps

That’s pretty much everything. I’m sure that in a few years this list will look incredibly outdated, but right now, these are my favourite utilities with which to make websites. Thanks for reading!
