Mac Setup

Here is an up-to-date list of software I always install when setting up a new mac (or wiping my current mac.) I find that keeping my environment somewhat reproducible and backed up, I can wipe my mac more often. I find that wiping my computer is like cleaning out your room by taking everything out and only putting back in the things you really need.
