  • Rectangle

    Move and resize windows on macOS with keyboard shortcuts and snap areas

    Also, windows key + direction arrows to snap windows on a Mac. Then I found rectangle

  • HomeBrew

    🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    One thing I knew about the Mac ecosystem is that it's relatively developer-friendly. While they had moved to zsh in 2019, the fact that they are using a terminal-like ecosystem that is almost as similar as bash (with quite notable exceptions) makes me feel at home in doing remote ssh commands to online servers. Every other needs can be done with Homebrew. (Caveat emptor on buying M1-powered Macbooks, as the underlying architecture is revamped so you have to rely on the x64-byte-to-M1 translator engine such as Rosetta 2 so that you can run previously x64-compatible software to the M1 architecture.)

  • SonarQube

  • darwin-xnu

    The Darwin Kernel (mirror). This repository is a pure mirror and contributions are currently not accepted via pull-requests, please submit your contributions via https://developer.apple.com/bug-reporting/

    Macs have the slickest chassis, components, and OS, making for a very efficient integrated system that supports Unix scripting. IMO, their low-end models are an absolute bargain these days for what you get. MacOS is based on the hybrid kernel of NeXTSTEP, which you can find here: https://github.com/apple/darwin-xnu

  • i3

    A tiling window manager

  • xnu

    You mean these kernels?
