Programmatically setting up a Dev Environment

ugw7g85q profile image Ugw7G85Q ・7 min read

So recently, due to user error (mine) I had to wipe my developer machine and go through the arduous process of setting it back up. In the attempt to simplify the process, I began searching around on the internet as a way to codify setup. After many tutorials, recommendations, and peer feedback (way too many contributors to mention: but thank you all!) I wanted to share my results. What used to take me 6 hours of set up of a new MacOS, takes about 30 minutes now (minus the cloning of my repositories and transfer of my documents, etc).

If you are needing to set up a your development machine, please take this template, change, alter, and make it your own. Most of all I hope to provide a solution to a new developer, a developer who just doesn't want to reimage their machine, or just someone who wants to look at the tools I use. An updated image of this script can be found at my GitHub Repo. Link

Happy Coding!


Tools I use:

HomeBrew
Python3+
Pip
PyEnv

Requirements:

  1. Running High Sierra
  2. Admin of your computer
  3. Understand and read every line of code and customize to your needs. THIS WILL FAIL IF YOU RUN AS IS! (Primarily the Git section, SSH Section, and what environment you work with (Python, Ruby, NodeJS, etc)).
  4. Remove the tools or sections you don't want either by commenting or deleting.

To install

  1. Download from the GitHub or copy/paste this version into a bash script.
  2. Run bash FILE_NAME
  3. Go get coffee.
