Introduction

Last year, I switched from developing on a dual-boot Windows and Linux machine to working on a Mac. During the transition, I felt my productivity slump: not only was I missing keyboard shortcuts that I had become very accustomed to (such as Alt+←, for instance), but some native MacOS behaviour drove me crazy (like ⌘+Tab cycling through applications rather than cycling through windows of all applications). I also found the Mac terminal to be lacking, missing important utilities, and running some outdated binaries. So, vowing to prove decisively the superiority of humans over machines, I decided to make my Mac Just Work* ™  * Like my PC used to.

Thanks for this post with most useful tips!

Unfortunately it seems that the ScotchBox VM is not well prepared for eZ Publish. It's missing at least the ext-xsl PHP extension, and I had no luck in trying to add it the the VM.

Cheers, Donat

Hi Donat,

Thanks for the read and feedback! I've been using ScotchBox quite a bit for eZ-related work and the only thing I've had to do is install eZ Components:


pear channel-discover components.ez.no
pear install -a ezc/eZComponents

 

That being said, if you find ScotchBox to be an unsuitable LAMP stack for your projects, you can replace it with one of a number of alternatives: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/boxes...3&sort=&provider=&q=lamp

You would simply replace the "scotch/box" in the Vagrantfile 

config.vm.box = "scotch/box"

to the name of the alternative box, for instance, 

config.vm.box = "smallhadroncollider/centos-6.4-lamp"

You can take it even one step further and create your own box from scratch, and then use that box as your starting point for all eZ projects.
