- Homebrew packages 🍺
- GUI Applications
I’ve recently acquired the new 15 inch Macbook Pro. Despite the UselessBar, I’ve been in love with it mainly because it’s light and thin and black. And also coming from a mechanical keyboard “background”, I actually really like the feely of the new Butterfly keyboard.
However, this post is not going to be about how I love my new machine, but rather how I set it up for iOS and Golang development. Many people have asked me about my setup, especially on my terminal setup. Thus, I’ll try to document everything in this post, and also try to keep it always up-to-date.
The very first thing I do is to install Homebrew
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Fish shell 🐡
My setup is going to be heavily relies on the shell, so let’s get Terminal ready.
I’ve switched from
fish shell for almost 2 years. And I feel like that
fish although not as powerful as
zsh, but it provides me with enough functionalities out of the box, and it requires very minimal configurations.
brew install fish echo /usr/local/bin/fish | sudo tee -a /etc/shells chsh -s /usr/local/bin/fish fisher
Restoring the dotfiles
I use the bare repo Git technique to manage my dotfiles. The method is described in detail on Atlassian’s blog
alias config='/usr/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.cfg/ --work-tree=$HOME' echo ".cfg" >> .gitignore git clone --bare https://github.com/khoi/dotfiles.git $HOME/.cfg config checkout

Install applications using
The ability to installing, maintaining, and removing apps using
brew cask makes I feel like a super hero. This is my preferred way of installing software.
brew cask install visual-studio-code brew cask install gpg-suite-no-mail brew cask install google-chrome brew cask install dash brew cask install alfred brew cask install charles brew cask install adguard brew cask install jetbrains-toolbox brew cask install docker brew cask install private-internet-access brew cask install caskroom/fonts/font-hack brew cask install font-fira-code brew cask install vlc brew cask install 1password-cli
Restore private keys
I stored my private keys, environment variables in 1Password.
set -x OP_SESSION_my (op signin https://my.1password.com firstname.lastname@example.org --output=raw) op get document id_rsa > ~/.ssh/id_rsa op get document id_rsa.pub > ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub chmod 0600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa op get document GPG > 1.asc gpg --import 1.asc rm 1.asc
- I use Dracula as the color scheme for most of my editor.
Overall, I’m really happy with the setup above. One thing I need to figure out is how to make use of this fancy-yet-useless TouchBar. Also I’ll probably go in to detail on how I use my shell with
neovim in another blog post. Stay tuned 🙇♂️.
