A quick method to the madness of setting up a new machine. I’ve done this a number of times, so I figured I’d write it down now. I’ll be installing the following on a fresh install of Yosemite:
- Install Xcode
- RVM - Ruby Version Manager
- Install Node.js
1. Download and Install Xcode Command Line Tools
Download Xcode and install.
2. Install Homebrew
Install Homebrew by running the following command and entering your password when prompted:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
3. Install RVM
Install RVM. A number of different options are available.
\curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
4. Download and Install Node.js
Download Node.js. Run the installer.
And So On…
This get’s me up and running mostly, but I also installed Grunt CLI
npm install -g grunt-cli so I can utilize it as my task manager. Off on your own now…
