How To Set Up Your Coding Environment

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • HomeBrew

    🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    On a Mac, do not use HomeBrew to install NVM. The NVM project recommends using their script. We had a few issues using NVM installed through HomeBrew over the years — issues we did not have when using their installer script.

  • nvm

    Node Version Manager - POSIX-compliant bash script to manage multiple active node.js versions

    By setting up your environment in isolation, you can prevent yourself from a lot of issues when experimenting with code. It makes your code behave more predictable due to the defined state of the runtime environment you are working with. This article should provide you with enough information to get started, but obviously, there is a lot more power embedded in NVM, Virtual Environment and RBEnv. So make sure to check their documentation.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • rbenv

    Manage your app's Ruby environment
