Most of my how-tos are portable and should work with macOS, BSD, or Linux, but I encourage you to try OpenBSD. It's a minimalist OS and has everything we need in its base, requires minimal maintenance.
There are four options to start:
If you have any issues with OpenBSD ping me anytime. I'm always glad to help.
You set up minimalist web development environment on your laptop (or desktop computer).
xenodm, cwm, xterm, tmux, vi.
OpenBSD compatible computer required.
You install production-ready web server on your bare metal server or on a VM provided by OpenBSD.Amsterdam or Vultr.
sshd, pf, ntpd, httpd, nsd, crontab, mtree, pax,
vmctl, pkg_add, pkg_info, pkg_delete
OpenBSD compatible computer or a virtual machine required.
You organize your files and make your terminal sessions cozy.
awk, cat, chmod, cpio, ed, find, grep, head, jot,
mkdir, mtree, printf, readlink, rm, sed, sort, tail, tr, wc.
*BSD or macOS required.
You set up your IDE based on Unix userland.
Write, test, and deploy scripts with sh, shellcheck, expect, tmux, vi, and entr.
Site generators. HTML and CSS. RSS. Meta tags.
Good-old HTTP and CGI as backend: httpd, slowcgi, cron, smtpd, awk, b64encode, cat, chmod, cpio, date, dd, find, grep, head, jot, mkdir, printf, readlink, rm, sed, sh, sha256, sort, tail, tee, tr, wc), jq, and curl.
