  • Atom, Sync: ~/.atom via github, add git token via github
  • XCode, swiftlint
  • Folders: dev/, research/, documents/
  • Elmedia, vlc, github, chrome, keynote, sketch, webtorrent, textexpander, gifski, smbfan
  • Keychain copy: ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain-db to new mac
  • Chrome: adblock, adguard, ublock

  • Just restore from backup
  • Delete apps you don’t need
  • Clean up photos or make backup etc
