…it's a little bit tricky to get it looking right in Mac OS. I've tested it in both Snow Leopard and Lion and figured out how to get it working nicely.

Snow Leopard's Terminal application doesn't support 256 colours, so I started using iTerm2 instead. With a little bit of configuration it's functionality equivalent to Terminal, and offers tonnes of extras. Lion's Terminal is fine. Both need to report xterm-256color , so ensure this is set …

…a GCC backend that utilizes LLVM. All OS X versions <= Snow Leopard originally shipped with regular gcc, but as of Xcode 4 (which is also the default on OS X Lion) Apple has switched to llvm-gcc as their default compiler. " Hurray", some people may think, as they heard that LLVM generates better code and/or is faster than default GCC. Unfortunately, the reality is not that great.

llvm-gcc is unmaintained and is considered deprecated by its developers. …

This is a quick heads-up! I have a blog post up on the Think Vitamin blog on installing Ruby, Rails, and MySQL on Mac OS X Lion . The instructions will also work on Snow Leopard (sorry Leopard users) and it walks through setting up gcc, homebrew, git, and mysql. It also uses RVM to install the latest release of Ruby. Check it out .

…tricky. That being said, it's still pretty easy to get Octave up and running in both Snow Leopard and Lion.

At the time of this post, here's two version of Octave to choose from: octave (version 3.2.4) and octave-devel (version 3.4.3). For my money, I like octave-devel . In my brief testing with the two, the biggest difference for me was that the graphs plotted in octave-devel looked more like their OS counterparts. With octave , I found the scaling of elements on the graph …

To make a long story short, Snow Leopard ships with key forwarding disabled by default and you will have to modify the file /etc/ssh_config to get it working.

Just change the lines

# Host *

# ForwardAgent no

into

Host *

ForwardAgent yes

and you are good.

I took the plunge this weekend, and installed Lion on my personal MacBook Pro.

First I made sure I had a bootable backup of my Snow Leopard install. Then I jumped in and pressed the continue button in the Lion installer.

All in all it went rather smoothly. Only one real problem, which I managed to fix, see below.

Lion for the Ruby/Rails developer

When I installed Snow Leopard my development environment was broken. Partly because the install wiped out packages I'd installed …

…Homebrew. Again, if you already had Git installed using Homebrew on Snow Leopard, you won't need to do anything new here . brew install git

Optional Install: wget and oh-my-zsh

The following is completely optional, but I recommend them. By default, OS X uses the bash shell when interacting with the terminal, but that's not the only shell available. I prefer zsh myself and for my install process, I use Robby Russell's oh-my-zsh. It's easiest to install oh-my-zsh …

…on Intel x86-64" which was released shortly before Apple released Snow Leopard( 10.6), and which won't work on OS X 10.6 without tweaks. The main source of information on these tweaks is Ray's blog article, but that article is nearly two years old at the time of this writing, and things have changes a bit in Snow Leopard since then.

My steps

I already have Xcode installed. If you don't you'll need it.

Follow along with the first steps of Ray's …
