Setting up a new machine used to be a huge chore that I did not look forward to, however in the Apple world there is a great tool called Homebrew that makes setting up a new machine a snap.

Homebrew is a package manager for MacOS. It has a plethora of packages available. In fact, there are very few programs that it does not have packages already available for. It is also extendable with private package repositories, making it simple for companies to share their products through it.
