The following is a list of apps that I use daily. Maybe you find some of them useful too? Please let me know on twitter!
This post is heavily inspired by a post from Jeff Triplett. 😀

I’m using a number of CLI tools, but these are the ones that I couldn’t work without.
Homebrew is a package manager for Mac OS X. IMHO it’s the best way to install, update and uninstall apps.
Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

jq is a lightweight and flexible command-line
JSON processor, that
allows you slice, filter and map structured data.
ag is a blazing fast search tool for text, optimized for large trees of source code.
tree is a recursive directory listing command that produces a depth indented listing of files.
amelia is a minimal Go app for creating GitHub Gists from your command-line interface.
I created amelia so that I could share code snippets more efficiently without having to copy paste file contents by hand.
