I currently have an iMac with quite a few apps on it. Can anyone help guide me (point me to references or articles) that would help me “batch” install all these apps onto the new MacBook Pro I plan on getting in a few weeks?
Example of what I mean:
I know you can install apps using the “terminal” in Linux Based operating systems, and I was wondering if Mac OS shared this ability? I am mostly just trying to avoid going to each individual website to download all the apps. I feel like it would be easier to just copy and paste scripts.
@whewelln this might be more complicated than you want to dig into, but I keep a script that does it all for me: https://github.com/racurry/osx_setup. You can poke around in my folders and see individual scripts that do individual bits of automating.
The important things to know about are brew, brew cask, and MAS; these all let you install software programatically.
