Change - Know that nothing stays the same

Boxen - the new way to install things.

May 17, 2013


It’s been four years since I bought my previous machine. I have a new one, and I was looking for to get some clean and easy way to install all I need.

It was a big surprise when I found BOXEN, a github project to get all you need in a repository and with a small group of lines install your laptop from scratch in 30 min.

You can set a basic env with some packages to start working and continue adding many other packages and update your system.

IMPORTANT: if you have a new equipment, first of all install BOXEN, you don’t need anything else to run it, if you have a new mac, it should have ruby and git installed to run Boxen directly.

I will post some tips to configure things like mysql and other stuffs.
