Navigation in iTerm2 on Mac

iTerm2 preferences

Using iTerm2 for development is awesome. You can use CTRL + a to move to the start of the current line and CTRL + e to move to the end.

With long commands, it would be convenient to just jump back a few words, edit the command and then execute it. Whilst this is possible by default in iTerms2, the keys are cumbersome.


Improving Docker for Mac performance

Docker makes developing applications a lot easier, but there are a few issues. One of these issues is volume performance in Docker for Mac.

One use of volumes is to allow you to keep a folder on your Mac synced in real-time with a Docker container. This means that you can make changes to your files on your mac and see the changes reflected in Docker straight away; great for development.
