Handy Mac Utils

I’ve applied some tools to what I use on my desktop setup for work.

  • Homebrew - The missing package manager for OS X. Great for those old favourites that you want with the moimimum of fuss. Been using this for the bones of about 4 years now.
  • Homebrew Cask - “To install, drag this icon…” no more! Useful for installing GUI-based tools like the few below.
  • Spectacle - Move and resize windows with ease. Window control with simple, customizable keyboard shortcuts.
  • iTerm2 - iTerm2 is a replacement for Terminal. Version 2 does handy terminal splitting and has tmux integration.
  • Bearded Spice - control browser-based media players with Mac media keys
  • itermocil - Create pre-defined window/pane layouts and run commands in iTerm
  • qlmarkdown - QuickLook Generator for Markdown files
