Setting up a brand new OS X for web development

After getting a new MacBook for work, there were a few things I did to make it better for coding, which I have listed below.

Oh My Zsh

Oh-My-Zsh is an open source, community-driven framework for managing your ZSH configuration. It comes bundled with a ton of helpful functions, helpers, plugins, themes, and a few things that make you shout… “Oh My ZSH!”

To install, run this command in terminal:

curl -L https://raw.github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh | sh

Solarized

A theme with a nice color palette to make looking at the terminal easier on the eyes.

Sublime Text

The best text editor for coding.

subl terminal shortcut

Edit ~/.zshrc , and add this line to the very end of the file:

alias subl='/Applications/Sublime\ Text.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl'

Restart terminal for the change to take effect.
