Subject Re: Setup & development software for Macs?
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2013 17:37:33 GMT
Btw, we could do the same for Win* as well. I usually only use *nix (Linux, Solaris and AIX)
or Mac, but sometimes I'm forced to use Windows at some customers.

I _never_ touch those Windows boxes without the following tools installed:

* Console2: http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/files/console-devel/2.00/
This is a multi-browser-tab console which is dynamically resizeable. You can also define mark,
copy & paste gestures for your mouse (like in Unix). There are also tons of hot-keys e.g.
for switching between those console tabs. And you can of course install your own shells into
it!

* msysgit: http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/

Not only is GIT itself great, but it comes with a really great bash out of the box! There
is a vi and even the file browsing is unix style: c:\windows is available as /c/windows/.
Tab completion works well, etc

Now you can easily add the bash from msysgit to Console2 as new default console tabs and you
end up with a resizeable multi-tab Unix shell for windows, with less, vi, tail, find -exec,
tee, wc, ... !


* VirtuaWin http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/?page_id=2
This gives you a few 'virtual desktops' as you know it from many Unix window managers. Very
useful if you have to work with multiple projects open at the same time.

Sorry for the slight OT, hope some of you find this useful.

LieGrue,
strub
