Setup a Shopware Development Environment on a Mac – Step 1 Prerequisites


I am using the following setup:

  • MacBook Pro (Retina 13″, 2013)
  • 3 GHz Intel Core i7
  • 8 GB RAM 1600 MHz DDR3 

    System Requirements

Getting started

You need a command line tool to install diverse software tools. For this start first the application „Terminal“ and you should see the PROMPT like this:

MyBookPro:~ admin$

The Name of my computer is „MyBookPro“ and I´m logged in as administrator. Now you have to check which $home directory you are using. Simply type „ls“ and press return. 

MyBookPro:~ admin$ ls

You will see all folders in your $home . Something like this:

Music Public

To double check, start your Finder application using you wonderful macOS Sierra user interface and click to .  I created a folder DEVroot before to store all my development artifacts in, so I want to keep my system easy to understand and clean. Now you know which folder is your $home directory of the administrator.
