    My automatic dev machine setup scripts and configs (by protiumx)

    I decided to try ansible out of curiosity to manage my dev environment. It is a very robust and versatile solution but it feels like an overkill for this task. I definitely like to set configuration files in yaml but my configurations/variables inside bash files are not too bloated to justify the switch (though I wrote the whole thing for ansible already). For now I'd prefer to continue using my bash+stow solution.

    :package: Mac App Store command line interface

    Same for taps and casks. For App store apps we use mas and ansible.builtin.command to run a shell command in loop:

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Ansible

    Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy and maintain. Automate everything from code deployment to network configuration to cloud management, in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.

    Yesterday I published: Bash + GNU Stow: take a walk while your new macbook is being set up. I was already taking a look at ansible so I decided to finish my playbooks to match exactly what my dotfiles script does.
