Setting Up Your Terminal in Mac OS X

The shell or command line interface (CLI) that you get when run the Terminal app in the Mac is an important and useful ingredient. For coding or web development, it is indispensable.

The default settings on Terminal are so bad they encourage non-use. To remedy this, download this file and save it to your Desktop as Temple.terminal. In Terminal, under Shell > Import, select the downloaded file. Save the resulting settings as the default.
