Basic macOS 10.13+ development environment for Trellis, Bedrock, and Sage
Trellis, Bedrock, and Sage development on macOS relies on several libraries and software packages. This guide will show you how to install and configure each of these recommended packages on your computer. This guide assumes basic knowledge of command line and terminal usage.
- Xcode Command Line Tools
Xcode Command Line Tools
Install Xcode Command Line Tools using the built-in command:
$ xcode-select --install
Git is automatically installed as part of the Xcode Command Line tools. Configure Git with your user information:
$ git config --global user.name "Your Name" $ git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
Install Homebrew from the instructions at https://brew.sh, or with the following command:
$ /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Install Composer from Homebrew:
$ brew install composer
Create SSH key
Trellis and GitHub both use SSH keys to communicate securely without the need to type a username and password each time. Create your SSH key and add them to your macOS Keychain:
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"
For more details on generating SSH keys, see GitHub's excellent documentation.
Add your SSH key to the ssh-agent
~/.ssh/config file to automatically load keys into the ssh-agent and store passphrases in your keychain.
~/.ssh/config file and add the following lines:
Host * AddKeysToAgent yes UseKeychain yes IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa
