Apple Silicon and Shell Scripts

Apple Silicon and Shell Scripts

This is my story of setting up a new dev environment using shell scripts and Apple Silicon. I was skeptical to move on from Intel-based systems to an ARM-based system due to the lack to support for dev tools like Docker and Homebrew.

On November 10, Apple unveiled the latest iteration of MacBook Pro, Air, and Mac Mini with its in-home Apple Silicon M1 chip. Being a longtime Mac user and developer, I was skeptical to move on from Intel-based systems to an ARM-based system due to the lack to support for dev tools like Docker and Homebrew (more on this later). However, due to the technological limitations of my 2012 MBP, I got myself a new Mac that was much more capable than my previous machine.

Fast-forward two weeks, and I am fully satisfied by how stupendously fast this machine is and the battery life it offers. But there was one glaring problem: setting up all the dependencies that I had accumulated over the years in my 2012 MBP. To alleviate this, I took the help of a good old friend: shell — more specifically, zsh.

Terminal has been part of macOS for a long time and this was an opportunity for me to utilize my skills to write a script that would install all the dependencies without aiming to install everything manually.

TL;DR:The following article talks about my experience with writing a shell script to set up dependencies on M1. If you are familiar with shell scripts and want to move forward with the setup, head to this repository.
