Boxstarter: quickly setup a machine with just a Gist

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/13


Quickly setup any machine with just a Gist – No Preinstalled software required

Want to setup your box without downloading any software or fussing with package authoring or publishing?

Well buckle up! [WayBack] Boxstarter makes this a snap!

Boxstarter makes it really easy to script things when you have a working internet connection.

The example script they show does a lot of things I normally configure by hand:

Set-WindowsExplorerOptions -EnableShowHiddenFilesFoldersDrives -EnableShowProtectedOSFiles -EnableShowFileExtensions

cinst fiddler4
cinst git-credential-winstore
cinst console-devel
cinst sublimetext2
cinst poshgit
cinst dotpeek

Thanks Thomas Mueller for pointing me to this.

Boxstarter does all kind of neat things with NuGet and Chocolatey.
