现在这里只介绍我入前端坑以来,外加我其它工作中常用使用的效率工具。
  我的工作环境是从Windows转向Mac的,用了Mac之后回不去了,Mac对于不撸游戏的玩家,要比Windows出众太多,所以这里只介绍我的电脑里面有的软件,但是很多软件是跨平台Windows上面也是有的哦。

编辑器
1. SublimeText(Windows/Mac)可以长期免费试用
这个工具已经很火了,我之前是99%的码是这上面撸出来的。关键是它的小巧、简洁、快枪手,长大的文本打开速度也是杠杠的。编码垒字的神器,还能览图/文件对比/....
拥有插件扩展机制,在它上面有一系列特别好用的插件,其中最喜欢的插件是  PlainTasks 我用它做一些简单的任务管理,比如写日报等

2. Atom (Windows/Mac)免费
这个软件也有很多人用。最近用得也特别多,最主要是这个软件我拿它开发ReactNative相关的项目,对ReactNative开发有个官方插件对调试代码提示都比较友好,Atom这个软件我有些不喜欢,它启动太慢了,大的文本文件打开要非常之久,无法忍受,没有办法ReactNative官方给它退出了个插件Nuclide。所以我一直用它,不过呢界面和代码高亮其实我挺喜欢的,啥时候能优化一下性能,我估计就抛弃的Sublime,虽然我已经抛弃Dreamweaver....。

3.Vim (Windows/Mac)免费
这个是个古老的编辑器,我接触到它的时候,其实是看到一个PHP程序猿在使用它来撸码,然后我接触到服务器部署等问题的时候,经常会使用它改一些配置和临时更改一些文件。很显然我已经掌握了它的使用。如果你使用它来做前端开发你需要一系列插件帮助你提供效率。在我的这个仓库里面有插件的各种玩儿法https://github.com/jaywcjlove/vim-web。

4.HBuilder(Window/Mac)免费
剩下就是这个国人开发的编辑器了,通常带新手的时候我建议他们安装这个编辑,因为上面的JS提示等各种很优秀,其实过往的一个软件Webstorm同样优秀,为啥不推荐它呢,主要它是个收费软件,身为程序员不建议你破解它,本着支持国货的态度,所以推荐HBuilder。

5. 其它我不用的优秀编辑器:
    a). Adobe推出的Brackets(Window/Mac)免费/开源编辑器,这个是它的仓库https://github.com/adobe/brackets/,它的官网在这里 http://brackets.io
    b). 微软推出的Visual Studio Code(Window/Mac)免费/开源编辑器,https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode,你可以去它的官网去看看它的介绍http://code.visualstudio.com

命令行工具Terminal
1. iTerm(Mac)免费
它是 OS X 下一款开源免费的的终端工具,直接替代自带的Terminal。这个可是Mac下最好用的终端工具了,没有之一,堪称神器,尚方宝剑😄。官网在这里:http://www.iterm2.com,它的特性太多了,如智能查找、切分屏幕、标签变色、智能选中、命令自动补齐、查看命令历史、全屏展示所有的tab等等。作为一个前端开发工程师,其实你慢慢的发现终端工具你使用越来越频繁了,所以你需要一个趁手的工具来高效完成你的工作。

2. oh my zsh
这个之前介绍了,我还为它发了一篇微信文章《前端工程师也需要zsh》点击进去看看?里面介绍了安装和使用方法。
官网:http://ohmyz.sh
Github: https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh


版本控制Git/SVN
        Git是一款免费、开源的分布式版本控制系统,用于敏捷高效地处理任何或小或大的项目。我已经多年不使用svn了,其它的版本控制工具我也没有使用过,如果你还不知道它,或者不能使用它我也不能说你什么。
官网在这里:https://www.git-scm.com/
        通常情况下我不太使用GUI,但是一般我在带新手的时候先建议他们安装GUI,然后慢慢学习命令行下操作。在git 官网上这种GUI工具多达十几款,在Mac平台我推荐一两款好用的软件GUI,官网GUI客户端列表:https://www.git-scm.com/downloads/guis。

1. DiffMerge (Windows/Mac/Linux)免费

DiffMerge 是一款可视化的文件比较(也可进行目录比较)与合并工具。 该软件主要具有文件差异比较、自动化的文件合并、以及文件夹差异比较这三大功能。这里下载:http://sourcegear.com/diffmerge/


2. SourceTree (Windows/Mac)免费

官网在这里:https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/


3.Gitup(Mac)免费开源

好玩的Gitup是 Mac OS X 的全功能开源 Git 客户端,提供快速,安全的操作,直接在硬盘上与 Git 数据库交互,操作库的图而不是操作 commits,官网在这里:http://gitup.co/



4. Cornerstone(Mac)收费工具
Cornerstone是Mac上最佳的SVN管理工具

5.Versions(Mac)收费工具

数据库

2. Chrome MySQL Admin免费
这个是一个Chrome插件,是MySQL开发的跨平台、可视化数据库工具。你可以翻墙,通过Chrome应用商店下载。


3. Robomongo(Windows/Linux/Mac)可以免费使用
Robomongo是一个开源的,基于Shell的MongoDB图形化客户端管理软件,主要由C++语言编写成,可运行在Windows,Linux和Mac OS X系统上。由于它内置了JavaScript引擎,所以在MongoShell中执行的任何操作都可以同样的在Robomongo的Shell中执行,最值得一提的是,它支持直接对数据以json方式浏览和修改,非常方便。官网在这里:https://robomongo.org/



设计/产品

1. Sketch(Mac)收费

它是一款mac平台下轻量,强大的矢量设计软件。很显然我已经放弃PS和AI,他们太臃肿和收费太贵。还有人把这个当作产品经理用来画原型,我个人看这个是不合理的,他是一个UI设计软件画原型其实时间成本太高,为什么有产品经理用它来画原型呢,说明它使用之简单,之漂亮。官网:http://www.sketchapp.com

这个是我常用的设计软件,已经放弃了PS。啊...

6. Justinmind(Mac)免费

画原型图工具,justinmind相比axure功能更丰富强大,但是团队合作比较难用主要是同步比较慢,jm功能丰富相对新手入手就有入门学习成本。好像不支持SVN。官网:http://www.justinmind.com


7. Axure RP 8(Windows/Mac)收费

画原型图工具,它能使用SVN工具,进行版本控制,使用成本。官网:http://www.axure.com


8. Mockplus(Windows/Mac)收费

是更快更简单的原型设计工具。交互快、设计快、演示快、上手快。拖一拖链接完成交互设计,放一放组件完成原型图,扫一扫二维码在手机中演示。https://www.mockplus.cn

9. XMind
是一款实用的思维导图软件,简单易用、美观、功能强大,拥有高效的可视化思维模式,具备可扩展、跨平台、稳定性和性能,真正帮助用户提高生产率,促进有效沟通及协作。http://www.xmind.net/

A beginner's guide to setting up a development environment on Mac OS X  .

Mac OS X Dev Setup

This document describes how I set up my developer environment on a new MacBook or iMac. We will set up Node (JavaScript), Python, and Ruby environments, mainly for JavaScript and Python development. Even if you don't program in all three, it is good to have them as many command-line tools use one of them. As you read and follow these steps, feel free to send me any feedback or comments you may have.
The document assumes you are new to Mac. The steps below were tested on OS X Mountain Lion.
If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to give me a shout on Twitter!

System update

First thing you need to do, on any OS actually, is update the system! For that: Apple Icon > Software Update...

System preferences

If this is a new computer, there are a couple tweaks I like to make to the System Preferences. Feel free to follow these, or to ignore them, depending on your personal preferences.
In Apple Icon > System Preferences:
  • Trackpad > Tap to click
  • Keyboard > Key Repeat > Fast (all the way to the right)
  • Keyboard > Delay Until Repeat > Short (all the way to the right)
  • Dock > Automatically hide and show the Dock

Google Chrome

Install your favorite browser, mine happens to be Chrome.
Download from www.google.com/chrome. Open the .dmg file once it's done downloading (this will mount the disk image), and drag and drop the Google Chrome app into the Applications folder (on the Mac, most applications are installed this way). When done, you can unmount the disk in Finder (the small "eject" icon next to the disk under Devices).

iTerm2

Since we're going to be spending a lot of time in the command-line, let's install a better terminal than the default one. Download and install iTerm2 (the newest version, even if it says "beta release").
In Finder, drag and drop the iTerm Application file into the Applications folder.
You can now launch iTerm, through the Launchpad for instance.
Let's just quickly change some preferences. In iTerm > Preferences..., under the tab General, uncheck Confirm closing multiple sessions and Confirm "Quit iTerm2 (Cmd+Q)" command under the section Closing.
In the tab Profiles, create a new one with the "+" icon, and rename it to your first name for example. Then, select Other Actions... > Set as Default. Finally, under the section Window, change the size to something better, like Columns: 125 and Rows: 35.
When done, hit the red "X" in the upper left (saving is automatic in OS X preference panes). Close the window and open a new one to see the size change.

Homebrew

Package managers make it so much easier to install and update applications (for Operating Systems) or libraries (for programming languages). The most popular one for OS X is Homebrew.

Install

An important dependency before Homebrew can work is the Command Line Tools for Xcode. These include compilers that will allow you to build things from source.
Now, Xcode weights something like 2GB, and you don't need it unless you're developing iPhone or Mac apps. Good news is Apple provides a way to install only the Command Line Tools, without Xcode. To do this you need to go to http://developer.apple.com/downloads, and sign in with your Apple ID (the same one you use for iTunes and app purchases). Unfortunately, you're greeted by a rather annoying questionnaire. All questions are required, so feel free to answer at random.
Once you reach the downloads page, search for "command line tools", and download the latest Command Line Tools (OS X Mountain Lion) for Xcode. Open the .dmg file once it's done downloading, and double-click on the .mpkg installer to launch the installation. When it's done, you can unmount the disk in Finder.
Note: If you are running OS X 10.9 Mavericks, then you can install the Xcode Command Line Tools directly from the command line with $ xcode-select --install, and you don't have to go through the download page and the questionnaire.
Finally, we can install Hombrew! In the terminal paste the following line (without the $), hit Enter, and follow the steps on the screen:
$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
One thing we need to do is tell the system to use programs installed by Hombrew (in /usr/local/bin) rather than the OS default if it exists. We do this by adding /usr/local/bin to your $PATH environment variable:
$ echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile
Open a new terminal tab with Cmd+T (you should also close the old one), then run the following command to make sure everything works:
$ brew doctor

Usage

To install a package (or Formula in Homebrew vocabulary) simply type:
$ brew install <formula>
To update Homebrew's directory of formulae, run:
$ brew update
Note: I've seen that command fail sometimes because of a bug. If that ever happens, run the following (when you have Git installed):
$ cd /usr/local
$ git fetch origin
$ git reset --hard origin/master
To see if any of your packages need to be updated:
$ brew outdated
To update a package:
$ brew upgrade <formula>
Homebrew keeps older versions of packages installed, in case you want to roll back. That rarely is necessary, so you can do some cleanup to get rid of those old versions:
$ brew cleanup
To see what you have installed (with their version numbers):
$ brew list --versions

Consolas

I really like the Consolas font for coding. Being a Microsoft (!) font, it is not installed by default. Since we're going to be looking at a lot of terminal output and code, let's install it now.
There are two ways we can install it. If you bought Microsoft Office for Mac, install that and Consolas will be installed as well.
If you don't have Office, follow these steps:
$ brew install cabextract
$ cd ~/Downloads
$ mkdir consolas
$ cd consolas
$ curl -O http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/5/a/f5a3df76-d856-4a61-a6bd-722f52a5be26/PowerPointViewer.exe
$ cabextract PowerPointViewer.exe
$ cabextract ppviewer.cab
$ open CONSOLA*.TTF
And click Install Font. Thanks to Alexander Zhuravlev for his post.

Beautiful terminal

Since we spend so much time in the terminal, we should try to make it a more pleasant and colorful place. What follows might seem like a lot of work, but trust me, it'll make the development experience so much better.
Let's go ahead and start by changing the font. In iTerm > Preferences..., under the tab Profiles, section Text, change both fonts to Consolas 13pt.
Now let's add some color. I'm a big fan of the Solarized color scheme. It is supposed to be scientifically optimal for the eyes. I just find it pretty.
Scroll down the page and download the latest version. Unzip the archive. In it you will find the iterm2-colors-solarized folder with a README.md file, but I will just walk you through it here:
  • In iTerm2 Preferences, under Profiles and Colors, go to Load Presets... > Import..., find and open the two .itermcolors files we downloaded.
  • Go back to Load Presets... and select Solarized Dark to activate it. Voila!
Note: You don't have to do this, but there is one color in the Solarized Dark preset I don't agree with, which is Bright Black. You'll notice it's too close to Black. So I change it to be the same as Bright Yellow, i.e. R 83 G 104 B 112.
Not a lot of colors yet. We need to tweak a little bit our Unix user's profile for that. This is done (on OS X and Linux), in the ~/.bash_profile text file (~ stands for the user's home directory).
We'll come back to the details of that later, but for now, just download the files .bash_profile, .bash_prompt, .aliases attached to this document into your home directory (.bash_profile is the one that gets loaded, I've set it up to call the others):
$ cd ~
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicolashery/mac-dev-setup/master/.bash_profile
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicolashery/mac-dev-setup/master/.bash_prompt
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicolashery/mac-dev-setup/master/.aliases
With that, open a new terminal tab (Cmd+T) and see the change! Try the list commands: ls, ls -lh (aliased to ll), ls -lha (aliased to la).
At this point you can also change your computer's name, which shows up in this terminal prompt. If you want to do so, go to System Preferences > Sharing. For example, I changed mine from "Nicolas's MacBook Air" to just "MacBook Air", so it shows up as MacBook-Air in the terminal.
Now we have a terminal we can work with!
(Thanks to Mathias Bynens for his awesome dotfiles.)

Git

What's a developer without Git? To install, simply run:
$ brew install git
When done, to test that it installed fine you can run:
$ git --version
And $ which git should output /usr/local/bin/git.
Let's set up some basic configuration. Download the .gitconfig file to your home directory:
$ cd ~
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicolashery/mac-dev-setup/master/.gitconfig
It will add some color to the status, branch, and diff Git commands, as well as a couple aliases. Feel free to take a look at the contents of the file, and add to it to your liking.
Next, we'll define your Git user (should be the same name and email you use for GitHub and Heroku):
$ git config --global user.name "Your Name Here"
$ git config --global user.email "your_email@youremail.com"
They will get added to your .gitconfig file.
To push code to your GitHub repositories, we're going to use the recommended HTTPS method (versus SSH). So you don't have to type your username and password everytime, let's enable Git password caching as described here:
$ git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain
Note: On a Mac, it is important to remember to add .DS_Store (a hidden OS X system file that's put in folders) to your .gitignore files. You can take a look at this repository's .gitignore file for inspiration.

Sublime Text

With the terminal, the text editor is a developer's most important tool. Everyone has their preferences, but unless you're a hardcore Vim user, a lot of people are going to tell you that Sublime Text is currently the best one out there.
Go ahead and download it. Open the .dmg file, drag-and-drop in the Applications folder, you know the drill now. Launch the application.
Note: At this point I'm going to create a shortcut on the OS X Dock for both for Sublime Text and iTerm. To do so, right-click on the running application and select Options > Keep in Dock.
Sublime Text is not free, but I think it has an unlimited "evaluation period". Anyhow, we're going to be using it so much that even the seemingly expensive $70 price tag is worth every penny. If you can afford it, I suggest you support this awesome tool. :)
Just like the terminal, let's configure our editor a little. Go to Sublime Text 2 > Preferences > Settings - User and paste the following in the file that just opened:
{
    "font_face": "Consolas",
    "font_size": 13,
    "rulers":
    [
        79
    ],
    "highlight_line": true,
    "bold_folder_labels": true,
    "highlight_modified_tabs": true,
    "tab_size": 2,
    "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
    "word_wrap": false,
    "indent_to_bracket": true
}
Feel free to tweak these to your preference. When done, save the file and close it.
I use tab size 2 for everything except Python and Markdown files, where I use tab size 4. If you have a Python and Markdown file handy (or create dummy ones with $ touch dummy.py), for each one, open it and go to Sublime Text 2 > Preferences > Settings - More > Syntax Specific - User to paste in:
{
    "tab_size": 4
}
Now for the color. I'm going to change two things: the Theme (which is how the tabs, the file explorer on the left, etc. look) and the Color Scheme (the colors of the code). Again, feel free to pick different ones, or stick with the default.
A popular Theme is the Soda Theme. To install it, run:
$ cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages/
$ git clone https://github.com/buymeasoda/soda-theme/ "Theme - Soda"
Then go to Sublime Text 2 > Preferences > Settings - User and add the following two lines:
"theme": "Soda Dark.sublime-theme",
"soda_classic_tabs": true
Restart Sublime Text for all changes to take effect (Note: on the Mac, closing all windows doesn't close the application, you need to hit Cmd+Q).
The Soda Theme page also offers some extra color schemes you can download and try. But to be consistent with my terminal, I like to use the Solarized Color Scheme, which already ships with Sublime Text. To use it, just go to Sublime Text 2 > Preferences > Color Scheme > Solarized (Dark). Again, this is really according to personal flavors, so pick what you want.
Sublime Text 2 already supports syntax highlighting for a lot of languages. I'm going to install a couple that are missing:
$ cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages/
$ git clone https://github.com/jashkenas/coffee-script-tmbundle CoffeeScript
$ git clone https://github.com/miksago/jade-tmbundle Jade
$ git clone https://github.com/danro/LESS-sublime.git LESS
$ git clone -b SublimeText2 https://github.com/kuroir/SCSS.tmbundle.git SCSS
$ git clone https://github.com/nrw/sublime-text-handlebars Handlebars
Let's create a shortcut so we can launch Sublime Text from the command-line:
$ cd ~
$ mkdir bin
$ ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/bin/subl
Now I can open a file with $ subl myfile.py or start a new project in the current directory with $ subl .. Pretty cool.
Sublime Text is very extensible. For now we'll leave it like that, we already have a solid installation. To add more in the future, a good place to start would be to install the Sublime Package Control.

Vim

Although Sublime Text will be our main editor, it is a good idea to learn some very basic usage of Vim. It is a very popular text editor inside the terminal, and is usually pre-installed on any Unix system.
For example, when you run a Git commit, it will open Vim to allow you to type the commit message.
I suggest you read a tutorial on Vim. Grasping the concept of the two "modes" of the editor, Insert (by pressing i) and Normal (by pressing Esc to exit Insert mode), will be the part that feels most unnatural. After that it's just remembering a few important keys.
Vim's default settings aren't great, and you could spend a lot of time tweaking your configuration (the .vimrc file). But if you're like me and just use Vim occasionally, you'll be happy to know that Tim Pope has put together some sensible defaults to quickly get started.
First, install pathogen.vim by running:
$ mkdir -p ~/.vim/autoload ~/.vim/bundle && \
    curl -LSso ~/.vim/autoload/pathogen.vim https://tpo.pe/pathogen.vim
Then create a file ~/.vimrc (you can use $ subl ~/.vimrc), and paste in the following:
execute pathogen#infect()
syntax on
filetype plugin indent on
And finally, install the Vim "sensible defaults" by running:
$ cd ~/.vim/bundle
$ git clone git://github.com/tpope/vim-sensible.git
With that, Vim will look a lot better next time you open it!

Python

OS X, like Linux, ships with Python already installed. But you don't want to mess with the system Python (some system tools rely on it, etc.), so we'll install our own version with Homebrew. It will also allow us to get the very latest version of Python 2.7.
The following command will install Python 2.7 and any dependencies required (it can take a few minutes to build everything):
$ brew install python
When finished, you should get a summary in the terminal. Running $ which python should output /usr/local/bin/python.
It also installed Pip (and its dependency Distribute), which is the package manager for Python. Let's upgrade them both:
$ pip install --upgrade distribute
$ pip install --upgrade pip
Executable scripts from Python packages you install will be put in /usr/local/share/python, so let's add it to the $PATH. To do so, we'll create a .path text file in the home directory (I've already set up .bash_profile to call this file):
$ cd ~
$ subl .path
And add these lines to .path:
PATH=/usr/local/share/python:$PATH
export PATH
Save the file and open a new terminal to take the new $PATH into account (everytime you open a terminal, .bash_profile gets loaded).

Pip Usage

Here are a couple Pip commands to get you started. To install a Python package:
$ pip install <package>
To upgrade a package:
$ pip install --upgrade <package>
To see what's installed:
$ pip freeze
To uninstall a package:
$ pip uninstall <package>

Virtualenv

Virtualenv is a tool that creates an isolated Python environment for each of your projects. For a particular project, instead of installing required packages globally, it is best to install them in an isolated folder in the project (say a folder named venv), that will be managed by virtualenv.
The advantage is that different projects might require different versions of packages, and it would be hard to manage that if you install packages globally. It also allows you to keep your global /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages folder clean, containing only critical or big packages that you always need (like IPython, Numpy).

Install

To install virtualenv, simply run:
$ pip install virtualenv

Usage

Let's say you have a project in a directory called myproject. To set up virtualenv for that project:
$ cd myproject/
$ virtualenv venv --distribute
If you want your virtualenv to also inherit globally installed packages (like IPython or Numpy mentioned above), use:
$ virtualenv venv --distribute --system-site-packages
These commands create a venv subdirectory in your project where everything is installed. You need to activate it first though (in every terminal where you are working on your project):
$ source venv/bin/activate
You should see a (venv) appear at the beginning of your terminal prompt indicating that you are working inside the virtualenv. Now when you install something:
$ pip install <package>
It will get installed in the venv folder, and not conflict with other projects.
Important: Remember to add venv to your project's .gitignore file so you don't include all of that in your source code!
As mentioned earlier, I like to install big packages (like Numpy), or packages I always use (like IPython) globally. All the rest I install in a virtualenv.

IPython

IPython is an awesome project which provides a much better Python shell than the one you get from running $ python in the command-line. It has many cool functions (running Unix commands from the Python shell, easy copy & paste, creating Matplotlib charts in-line, etc.) and I'll let you refer to the documentation to discover them.

Install

Before we install IPython, we'll need to get some dependencies. Run the following:
$ brew update # Always good to do
$ brew install zeromq # Necessary for pyzmq
$ brew install pyqt # Necessary for the qtconsole
It may take a few minutes to build these.
Once it's done, we can install IPython with all the available options:
$ pip install ipython[zmq,qtconsole,notebook,test]

Usage

You can launch IPython from the command line with $ ipython, but what's more interesting is to use its QT Console. Launch the QT Console by running:
$ ipython qtconsole
You can also customize the font it uses:
$ ipython qtconsole --ConsoleWidget.font_family="Consolas" --ConsoleWidget.font_size=13
And since I'm lazy and I don't want to type or copy & paste that all the time, I'm going to create an alias for it. Create a .extra text file in your home directory with $ subl ~/.extra (I've set up .bash_profile to load .extra), and add the following line:
alias ipy='ipython qtconsole --ConsoleWidget.font_family="Consolas" --ConsoleWidget.font_size=13'
Open a fresh terminal. Now when you run $ ipy, it will launch the QT Console with your configured options.
To use the in-line Matplotlib functionality (nice for scientific computing), run $ ipy --pylab=inline.

Numpy and Scipy

The Numpy and Scipy scientific libraries for Python are always a little tricky to install from source because they have all these dependencies they need to build correctly. Luckily for us, Samuel John has put together some Homebrew formulae to make it easier to install these Python libraries.
First, grab the special formulae (which are not part of Homebrew core):
$ brew tap samueljohn/python
$ brew tap homebrew/science
Then, install the gfortran dependency (now in gcc) which we will need to build the libraries:
$ brew install gcc
Finally, you can install Numpy and Scipy with:
$ brew install numpy
$ brew install scipy
(It may take a few minutes to build.)

MySQL

Install

We will install MySQL using Homebrew, which will also install some header files needed for MySQL bindings in different programming languages (MySQL-Python for one).
To install, run:
$ brew update # Always good to do
$ brew install mysql
As you can see in the ouput from Homebrew, before we can use MySQL we first need to set it up with:
$ unset TMPDIR
$ mkdir /usr/local/var
$ mysql_install_db --verbose --user=`whoami` --basedir="$(brew --prefix mysql)" --datadir=/usr/local/var/mysql --tmpdir=/tmp

Usage

To start the MySQL server, use the mysql.server tool:
$ mysql.server start
To stop it when you are done, run:
$ mysql.server stop
You can see the different commands available for mysql.server with:
$ mysql.server --help
To connect with the command-line client, run:
$ mysql -uroot
(Use exit to quit the MySQL shell.)
Note: By default, the MySQL user root has no password. It doesn't really matter for a local development database. If you wish to change it though, you can use $ mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'.

MySQL Workbench

In terms of a GUI client for MySQL, I'm used to the official and free MySQL Workbench. But feel free to use whichever you prefer.
You can find the MySQL Workbench download here. (Note: It will ask you to sign in, you don't need to, just click on "No thanks, just start my download!" at the bottom.)

Node.js

Install Node.js with Homebrew:
$ brew update
$ brew install node
The formula also installs the npm package manager. However, as suggested by the Homebrew output, we need to add /usr/local/share/npm/bin to our path so that npm-installed modules with executables will have them picked up.
To do so, add this line to your ~/.path file, before the export PATH line:
PATH=/usr/local/share/npm/bin:$PATH
Open a new terminal for the $PATH changes to take effect.
We also need to tell npm where to find the Xcode Command Line Tools, by running:
$ sudo xcode-select -switch /usr/bin
(If Xcode Command Line Tools were installed by Xcode, try instead:)
$ sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer
Node modules are installed locally in the node_modules folder of each project by default, but there are at least two that are worth installing globally. Those are CoffeeScript and Grunt:
$ npm install -g coffee-script
$ npm install -g grunt-cli

Npm usage

To install a package:
$ npm install <package> # Install locally
$ npm install -g <package> # Install globally
To install a package and save it in your project's package.json file:
$ npm install <package> --save
To see what's installed:
$ npm list # Local
$ npm list -g # Global
To find outdated packages (locally or globally):
$ npm outdated [-g]
To upgrade all or a particular package:
$ npm update [<package>]
To uninstall a package:
$ npm uninstall <package>
##JSHint
JSHint is a JavaScript developer's best friend.
If the extra credit assignment to install Sublime Package Manager was completed, JSHint can be run as part of Sublime Text.
Install JSHint via npm (global install preferred)
$ npm install -g jshint
Follow additional instructions on the JSHint Package Manager page or build it manually.

Ruby and RVM

Like Python, Ruby is already installed on Unix systems. But we don't want to mess around with that installation. More importantly, we want to be able to use the latest version of Ruby.

Install

When installing Ruby, best practice is to use RVM (Ruby Version Manager) which allows you to manage multiple versions of Ruby on the same machine. Installing RVM, as well as the latest version of Ruby, is very easy. Just run:
$ curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
When it is done, both RVM and a fresh version of Ruby 2.0 are installed. The following line was also automatically added to your .bash_profile:
[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" # Load RVM into a shell session *as a function*
I prefer to move that line to the .extra file, keeping my .bash_profile clean. I suggest you do the same.
After that, start a new terminal and run:
$ type rvm | head -1
You should get the output rvm is a function.

Usage

The following command will show you which versions of Ruby you have installed:
$ rvm list
The one that was just installed, Ruby 2.0, should be set as default. When managing multiple versions, you switch between them with:
$ rvm use system # Switch back to system install (1.8)
$ rvm use 2.0.0 --default # Switch to 2.0.0 and sets it as default
Run the following to make sure the version you want is being used (in our case, the just-installed Ruby 1.9.3):
$ which ruby
$ ruby --version
You can install another version with:
$ rvm install 1.9.3
To update RVM itself, use:
$ rvm get stable
RubyGems, the Ruby package manager, was also installed:
$ which gem
Update to its latest version with:
$ gem update --system
To install a "gem" (Ruby package), run:
$ gem install <gemname>
To install without generating the documentation for each gem (faster):
$ gem install <gemname> --no-document
To see what gems you have installed:
$ gem list
To check if any installed gems are outdated:
$ gem outdated
To update all gems or a particular gem:
$ gem update [<gemname>]
RubyGems keeps old versions of gems, so feel free to do come cleaning after updating:
$ gem cleanup
I mainly use Ruby for the CSS pre-processor Compass, which is built on top of Sass:
$ gem install compass --no-document

LESS

CSS preprocessors are becoming quite popular, the most popular processors are LESS and SASS. Preprocessing is a lot like compiling code for CSS. It allows you to reuse CSS in many different ways. Let's start out with using LESS as a basic preprocessor, it's used by a lot of popular CSS frameworks like Bootstrap.

Install

To install LESS you have to use NPM / Node, which you installed earlier using Homebrew. In the terminal use:
$ npm install less --global
Note: the --global flag is optional but it prevents having to mess around with file paths. You can install without the flag, just know what you're doing.
You can check that it installed properly by using:
$ lessc --version
This should output some information about the compiler:
lessc 1.5.1 (LESS Compiler) [JavaScript]
Okay, LESS is installed and running. Great!

Usage

There's a lot of different ways to use LESS. Generally I use it to compile my stylesheet locally. You can do that by using this command in the terminal:
$ lessc template.less template.css
The two options are the "input" and "output" files for the compiler. The command looks in the current directory for the LESS stylesheet, compiles it, and outputs it to the second file in the same directory. You can add in paths to keep your project files organized:
$ lessc less/template.less css/template.css
Read more about LESS on their page here: http://lesscss.org/

Heroku

Heroku, if you're not already familiar with it, is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that makes it really easy to deploy your apps online. There are other similar solutions out there, but Heroku was among the first and is currently the most popular. Not only does it make a developer's life easier, but I find that having Heroku deployment in mind when building an app forces you to follow modern app development best practices.

Install

Assuming that you have an account (sign up if you don't), let's install the Heroku Client for the command-line. Heroku offers a Mac OS X installer, the Heroku Toolbelt, that includes the client. But for these kind of tools, I prefer using Homebrew. It allows us to keep better track of what we have installed. Luckily for us, Homebrew includes a heroku-toolbelt formula:
$ brew install heroku-toolbelt
The formula might not have the latest version of the Heroku Client, which is updated pretty often. Let's update it now:
$ heroku update
Don't be afraid to run heroku update every now and then to always have the most recent version.

Usage

Login to your Heroku account using your email and password:
$ heroku login
If this is a new account, and since you don't already have a public SSH key in your ~/.ssh directory, it will offer to create one for you. Say yes! It will also upload the key to your Heroku account, which will allow you to deploy apps from this computer.
If it didn't offer create the SSH key for you (i.e. your Heroku account already has SSH keys associated with it), you can do so manually by running:
 $ mkdir ~/.ssh
 $ ssh-keygen -t rsa
Keep the default file name and skip the passphrase by just hitting Enter both times. Then, add the key to your Heroku account:
$ heroku keys:add
Once the key business is done, you're ready to deploy apps! Heroku has a great Getting Started guide, so I'll let you refer to that (the one linked here is for Python, but there is one for every popular language). Heroku uses Git to push code for deployment, so make sure your app is under Git version control. A quick cheat sheet (if you've used Heroku before):
$ cd myapp/
$ heroku create myapp
$ git push heroku master
$ heroku ps
$ heroku logs -t
The Heroku Dev Center is full of great resources, so be sure to check it out!

MongoDB

MongoDB is a popular NoSQL database.

Install

Installing it is very easy through Homebrew:
$ brew update
$ brew install mongo

Usage

In a terminal, start the MongoDB server:
$ mongod
In another terminal, connect to the database with the Mongo shell using:
$ mongo
I'll let you refer to MongoDB's Getting Started guide for more!

Redis

Redis is a blazing fast, in-memory, key-value store, that uses the disk for persistence. It's kind of like a NoSQL database, but there are a lot of cool things that you can do with it that would be hard or inefficient with other database solutions. For example, it's often used as session management or caching by web apps, but it has many other uses.

Install

To install Redis, use Homebrew:
$ brew update
$ brew install redis

Usage

Start a local Redis server using the default configuration settings with:
$ redis-server
For advanced usage, you can tweak the configuration file at /usr/local/etc/redis.conf (I suggest making a backup first), and use those settings with:
$ redis-server /usr/local/etc/redis.conf
In another terminal, connect to the server with the Redis command-line interface using:
$ redis-cli
I'll let you refer to Redis' documentation or other tutorials for more information.

Elasticsearch

As it says on the box, Elasticsearch is a "powerful open source, distributed real-time search and analytics engine". It uses an HTTP REST API, making it really easy to work with from any programming language.
You can use elasticsearch for such cool things as real-time search results, autocomplete, recommendations, machine learning, and more.

Install

Elasticsearch runs on Java, so check if you have it installed by running:
java -version
If Java isn't installed yet, a window will appear prompting you to install it. Go ahead and click "Install".
Next, install elasticsearch with:
$ brew install elasticsearch
Note: Elasticsearch also has a plugin program that gets moved to your PATH. I find that too generic of a name, so I rename it to elasticsearch-plugin by running (will need to do that again if you update elasticsearch):
$ mv /usr/local/bin/plugin /usr/local/bin/elasticsearch-plugin
Below I will use elasticsearch-plugin, just replace it with plugin if you haven't followed this step.
As you guessed, you can add plugins to elasticsearch. A popular one is elasticsearch-head, which gives you a web interface to the REST API. Install it with:
$ elasticsearch-plugin --install mobz/elasticsearch-head

Usage

Start a local elasticsearch server with:
$ elasticsearch -f
(The -f option tells it to run in the foreground, so you can stop it with Ctrl+C.)
Test that the server is working correctly by running:
$ curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/'
If you installed the elasticsearch-head plugin, you can visit its interface at http://localhost:9200/_plugin/head/.
Elasticsearch's documentation is more of a reference. To get started, I suggest reading some of the blog posts linked on this StackOverflow answer.

Projects folder

This really depends on how you want to organize your files, but I like to put all my version-controlled projects in ~/Projects. Other documents I may have, or things not yet under version control, I like to put in ~/Dropbox (if you have Dropbox installed), or ~/Documents.

Apps

Here is a quick list of some apps I use, and that you might find useful as well:
  • Dropbox: File syncing to the cloud. I put all my documents in Dropbox. It syncs them to all my devices (laptop, mobile, tablet), and serves as a backup as well! (Free for 2GB)
  • Google Drive: File syncing to the cloud too! I use Google Docs a lot to collaborate with others (edit a document with multiple people in real-time!), and sometimes upload other non-Google documents (pictures, etc.), so the app comes in handy for that. (Free for 5GB)
  • 1Password: Allows you to securely store your login and passwords. Even if you only use a few different passwords (they say you shouldn't!), this is really handy to keep track of all the accounts you sign up for! Also, they have a mobile app so you always have all your passwords with you (syncs with Dropbox). A little pricey though. There are free alternatives. ($50 for Mac app, $18 for iOS app)
  • Marked: As a developer, most of the stuff you write ends up being in Markdown. In fact, this README.md file (possibly the most important file of a GitHub repo) is indeed in Markdown, written in Sublime Text, and I use Marked to preview the results everytime I save. ($4)
  • Path Finder: I love OSX, it's Unix so great for developers, and all of it just works and looks pretty! Only thing I "miss" from Windows (OMG what did he say?), is a decent file explorer. I think Finder is a pain to use. So I gladly paid for this alternative, but I understand others might find it expensive just to not have to use Finder. ($40)
  • Evernote: If I don't write something down, I'll forget it. As a developer, you learn so many new things every day, and technology keeps changing, it would be insane to want to keep it all in your head. So take notes, sync them to the cloud, and have them on all your devices. To be honest, I switched to Simplenote because I only take text notes, and I got tired of Evernote putting extra spaces between paragraphs when I copy & pasted into other applications. Simplenote is so much better for text notes (and it supports Markdown!). (Both are free)
  • Moom: Don't waste time resizing and moving your windows. Moom makes this very easy. ($10)
