Mac – Install Xcode for git?!

It is so lame that I have to install Xcode to get git to work on the command line. I did’t have this problem last time I used git, but I just a few days ago upgraded to Sierra and I received this message while trying to clone a repository from GitHub.

git clone error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun

Aaaand, lame. I don’t think I’ve ever read a really long license agreement via a terminal window, btw. That was a thing to behold.

That said, once I installed the tools, Xcode reqs, everything was peachy and worked fine.

Here’s to doing that in the shell:

xcode-select --install

Or if you already have Xcode

xcode-select --reset

Yep, I’m in Mac all the way now. Instead of griping about MSFT tools, I get to gripe about other tools 🙂 Stay tuned.

Snow Leopard and Quicksilver

I recently did the upgrade to Snow Leopard on my MBP. To my dismay, Quicksilver no longer worked. It terminated immediately after launch.

I found the the Beta 56a7 on here.

I also had to remove Plugins.plist and the Plugins folder from ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver.

I am ecstatic to report that Quicksilver is up and running again, and my Mac is happy.
