ve just read with pleasure, and learned a lot from these questions :
- OS X Terminal Tips and Tricks
- OS X Hidden features and nice tips & tricks
- OS X Applications you can’t live without
But I didn’t find in these some of my favorites tools, which I use on a daily basis, and I think that’s because these are OSX/Terminal intended tools, not fitting well in above questions.
My favorites are, by order of preference: oh-my-zsh, homebrew (but also macports), janus…
These tools having in common :
- Terminal: install and use
- OSX Intended:
- Easy Install: one liner, ie.
- Extensible: possibly has extensions or simple API (eg. oh-my-zsh with plugins, brew with formulas, janus with bundled vim plugins…)
- Often open source, free, hosted on github, scripted, mostly (but not only!) with ruby…
Do you know any other similar must-have tools? I would love to discover new ones!
