Some things that I've set up on my MBP:

  • Terminal Settings
    • ~/.profile
      • Changed prompt
      • Default is 'h:W u$ ' [ Computer-Name: current-directory username$ ]
      • Changed to '[w] '
      • man bash, find "PROMPTING" for escape codes
  • Editors
    • TextEdit - for simple text files, quick code tweaks
    • XCode [default code editor] - for longer code edit sessions and code viewing
    • macvim - for text file batch editing, power code substitution
  • Programming
  • XCode
  • git for Mac
  • Twitter
  • TweetDeck for Social Media Monitoring
  • Nambu for compact Twitter monitoring with lists
  • Tweetie for Twitter as a stream only
