What would you like to do?
Upgrade OSX to Mavericks (Xcode, brew, boxen etc.)


  1. Install Mavericks
  2. Upgrade Xcode via App Store
  3. Launch Xcode to accept terms and auto install components
  4. Run the following commands
  • $ xcode-select --install # install command line tools if you have not already
  • $ boxen
  • $ brew update

Note: If brew fails (either in the boxen step or in the brew one) it is most likely due to uncommitted changes in your brew folder. Do the following then run the command (that failed) again.

  • $ cd /opt/boxen/homebrew
  • $ git add .
  • $ git stash
  • $ boxen

If you need what was not committed you can just pop your stash!

$ cd ~/src/snowflake
$ bundle; brake db:migrate db:test:prepare

# of "Name*Can't be blank" 
$ foreman start

ICIS Staff
