  • Solarized
  • Git
  • Unicode-compatible fonts and terminals (I use iTerm2 + Menlo)

For Mac users, I highly recommend iTerm 2 + Solarized Dark

OSX for Hackers: Yosemite/El Capitan Edition. This script tries not to be *too* opinionated and any major changes to your system require a prompt. You've been warned.
# SOME COMMANDS WILL NOT WORK ON macOS (Sierra or newer)

# Alot of these configs have been taken from the various places

Uninstall nodejs from OSX Yosemite
View gist:d75101d9bdf764c890ef
# first:
lsbom -f -l -s -pf /var/db/receipts/ | while read f; do sudo rm /usr/local/${f}; done
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/node /usr/local/lib/node_modules /var/db/receipts/org.nodejs.*
# To recap, the best way (I've found) to completely uninstall node + npm is to do the following:
# go to /usr/local/lib and delete any node and node_modules
cd /usr/local/lib
sudo rm -rf node*

NOTE: Not updated since early 2013 - likely will not work with modern EmberData. Ember.JS, ember-data, and adapter.
