(Mixing 64-bit and 32-bit is something Mac OS X does much better.) 7.04 worked fine running 32-bit applications on the 64-bit kernel. 7.10 broke the linux32 script and the ability to install new 32-bit applications though old ones continued to (mostly) run. 8.04 killed 32-bit java by making it impossible to connect to the network from a 32-bit. Best programming languages for coders compared, including Swift, Python, Java, C and Perl. Coding has never been more popular, and learning to program in Mac OS X is a great skill to get. I upvoted all the answers suggesting IntelliJ IDEA. It's not only the best Java IDE for Mac, but for all platforms on which it deploys I would say. Pretty much yeah. Still slow as hell if your project is big (but it's not like Eclipse is any better, in fact it's arguably much worse), but it's a great IDE if you're forced to code in Java.

Here’s how I get productive for JavaScript/Node on Mac OS.

It includes iTerm2, zsh, Node, Visual Studio Code and some git commands.

Table of Contents

Setup iTerm2

  • Install iTerm2

Change edit mode to natural text

  • iTerm Preferences → Profiles → select your profile → Keys tab → Load Preset… → Natural Text Editing (See this StackOverflow answer)

New session should start where previous left off

  • iTerm Preferences → Profiles → select your profile → General tab → Working Directory section → Reuse previous session’s directory option

Quit on tab close

  • iTerm Preferences → General, “Closing” → “Quit when all windows are closed”

Increase font size

  • iTerm Preferences → Profiles → select your profile → Text tab → Font section → Change font → Update font in the popup
  • Fan of 16pt Monaco (12, 14 is just too small)

Enable infinite history

  • iTerm Preferences → Profiles → select your profile → Terminal tab → Unlimited scrollback

Shell setup


With oh-my-zsh manager. Sets you up with auto-completion.

Java os x

snazzy colour theme

Using iterm-snazzy, which is a case of downloading the .itermcolors file and choosing the theme from (iTerm Preferences → Profile > Colors > Color Presets…).

Pure prompt

It’s simple, clean but gives you enough information to be productive.

(see Setup and configuration for how to get Node/npm up and running)

  • Install using npm: npm install --global pure-prompt
  • Initialise by adding the following to your .zshrc:

As a developer it’s always good to have a few browsers and tools handy:

  • Google Chrome: still a goto due to its solid and extensive dev tools. Usually I install the React or Vue dev tools.
  • Postman for Mac: to manually test APIs
  • Firefox: number 2 browser
  • Brave: auto-blocks ads and tracking, sort of the “play” browser, its dev tools are a buggier/less ergonomic version of Chrome dev tools (this is because Brave uses Chromium under the hood)
  • Safari - installed by default on Mac OSX, it’s a buggy browser, good to test using it since it surfaces weird SVG and cookies security policy quirks. Since it’s the default it’s also widely used by non-technical people.
    • Enable the dev tools: Safari → Preferences → Advanced → Show develop menu in menu bar.

I use Visual Studio Code, it strikes the right balance between usable out of the box and customisable. Opera for mac older versions software. The way I see it editors like vim or Atom need a bit of config before being productive, and others like Sublime or IDEs (WebStorm) don’t have the same plugin ecosystem.

Install VSCode command line tools

Open the dialog using CMD + P.

Use: Shell Command: Install 'code' command in PATH

The VSCode command line tool usage examples:

  • code . : open . directory in VSCode
  • code -r . : replace directory opened in VSCode with the current directory
  • code -a . : add current directory to VSCode, ie. initialises a workspace

Must-have extensions

  • Atom keymap: I’m not a fan of the default keybindings, this uses Atom-style ones, get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace or ext install atom-keybindings from CMD + P menu
  • EditorConfig for VS Code: “EditorConfig helps developers define and maintain consistent coding styles between different editors and IDEs.” (see editorconfig.org), ie. helps you deal with tab size, trimming spaces etc. across code editors, get it here from the Visual Studio Marketplace or ext install EditorConfig from CMD + P menu

Nice to have extensions

  • ESLint: “Integrates ESLint JavaScript into VS Code.”, get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace or ext install vscode-eslint from CMD + P menu
  • npm Intellisense: “autocomplete npm modules in import statements”, get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace or ext install npm-intellisense from CMD + P menu
  • Snazzy theme: same colour theme (snazzy) as I’ve got setup for the terminal for VSCode, get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace or ext install snazzy theme
  • Import Cost: “Display import/require package size in the editor”, get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace, or ext install import-cost

Not many productivity apps, just Alfred, which I use as a better Spotlight Search and Clipy which is a clipboard manager.


A simple clipboard manager designed for OSX.

It works out of the box better than Clipy (see below).

Install it through Homebrew:

Update the preferred hotkey to CMD + shift + v:

Download Java For Mac Os

Paste by default on selection of a clipboard item:

Superseded by Maccy Clipy

Bump up the number of “inline items” (Clipy → Preferences → Menu → Number of items place inline).

Set your screenshots to save to clipboard + enable the option to paste as plain text (Clipy → Preferences → Beta → Paste as PlainText + Save screenshots in history).

Update Xcode using xcode-select--``install.

Install Homebrew for package managements (think apt or pkg for Mac):

Install Node.js either from source, using the Mac installer or using Homebrew:

Install n – Interactively Manage Your Node.js Versions using npm (now that we have Node installed):npm install--``global n

Switch to latest Node version using n:sudo n latest

Install jq (format and deal with JSON nicely in the terminal) and watch (run a command repeatedly) using Homebrew


Add a few git extensions:

  • git-open: “Type git open to open the GitHub page or website for a repository in your browser.” using npm install --global git-open
  • git-standup: “Recall what you did on the last working day.” using git standup, there are multiple install options (see git-standup#install), I usually go with: brew install git-standup
  • git-lg: simpler/prettier git log:

Add the following minimal .vimrc, which enables syntax highlighting, has basic tab/tabsize configuration and enables line numbers display:

Set up SSH keys and add to VCS hosting, see this GitHub help article:

  • Generate a new key: ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C '*[email protected]*'
  • Copy your public key to clipboard so you can paste it wherever your hosted Version Control system asks you to: pbcopy < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

Put percentage on power level, right-click the battery indicator and select “Show Percentage”.

Docker is a containerisation technology, think VMs but smaller. I recommend Docker for Mac.VirtualBox allows you to run Virtual Machines on Mac, install it at VirtualBox downloads.
