Binary confusion - first steps of a new MacOS user

Check out homebrew (https://brew.sh/); it may feel a bit more familiar coming from the *NIX/*BSD world for application management.

Is Macbook Air M1 (16/512) good for Web Development
1 project | reddit.com/r/MacOS | 25 Nov 2021
Yes, indeed it is. I had the 13" MacBook Pro M1 and used VSCode with a nice Apache/PHP/MySQL install using Homebrew ( https://brew.sh ). I used DBeaver Community for database management.

Homebrew member here. Although we don't actively support macOS versions older than what Apple issues security updates for, we do try to at least keep brew itself working on 10.10 and later (I myself run 10.12 at home). OS X 10.9 was the first to ship with built-in support for TLS 1.2 (which has become a de facto minimum requirement to even browse the web these days), so there's bound to be bugs. Also, every macOS version older than 10.15.5 was hit with this issue that took a lot of work to route around. Sorry there isn't an easier answer than "try MacPorts" or "use a newer machine to pre-download everything beforehand".
Any recommended binary package managers?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Gentoo | 21 Nov 2021
I have little experience personally to recommend it, but Homebrew (https://brew.sh/) should work, and seems to be just what you are looking for.

If you have an actual xlsx file you might want to look into some sort of tool to convert from xlsx to csv. You can probably get xls2csv with homebrew from https://brew.sh
How I set up a RaspberryPi to share my files and media
4 projects | dev.to | 24 Nov 2021
So far I am most happy with using the curious SSHFS, which allows you to mount directories across networks as an extension to the SSH protocol. It needs no extra components on server side, and I have found it performant and stable. On client side it needs some extra components, depending on your operating system. Unfortunately, on macOS, this requires installing the closed source macFUSE, it used to be open source, and recent decisions to become closed source have attracted much discussion. This license change has also caused issues for projects that used to bundle macFUSE, including installing it with Homebrew.
Anyone else experiencing issues with finder integration on MacOS Monterey?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/Keybase | 17 Nov 2021
I installed it using from here: https://osxfuse.github.io/3 projects | reddit.com/r/Keybase | 17 Nov 2021
I tried installing fuse, then reinstalling keybase using 4.2.1 and 4.2.3. Also tried playing with symbolic links in /Library/Filesystems/kbfuse.fs/Contents/Extensions. Nothing optimistic to say.

Better cloud storage solutions or OneDrive Fix?
1 project | reddit.com/r/cloudstorage | 24 Oct 2021
pCloud is really good but on macOS it requires you to run a file system integration layer, macFuse https://osxfuse.github.io/ , and it bugged me a few times (filenames that couldn't sync for instance). That was a while ago and probably doesn't apply to Windows users.
