Summary Look beyond the basics of Mac programming and development to become a Mac power user. When most people think about the Mac, they think about the amazing graphical user interface macOS is known for. However, there is a whole world to explore beneath the hood. This book approaches working directly in the terminal with fun projects and ideas to help turn you into an advanced Mac user. You'll work with Brew (HomeBrew), which gives you the ability to install applications from Linux (and Unix) that can make the terminal more useful. This is important, because a lot of applications have been stripped out of macOS or deprecated. For example, Apple's built-in PHP is usually a major release behind. You'll also customize your terminal to change everything about it, making it your own. The whole world is about personalizing. Why put up with the Apple defaults? Once you have your terminal set up and ready to rock, you'll review the basics of programming on the Mac terminal. This will allow you to get a taste of power scripting. You'll discover the power of bash, PHP, and Python.  And then you'll apply those tools to web development. Tweak Your Mac Terminal takes you on a journey into a world of the terminal and its hidden applications. What You'll Learn Customize the terminal to make it perfect for your needs Develop web applications using basic coding skills in the terminal Install HomeBrew and by extension Linux and Unix applications Who This Book Is For Mac users who are already very familiar with the GUI and want to go further. This book will especially help starting IT professionals and beginning programmers.
