Mac

Mostly for myself when setting up macOS.

Allow me to introduce a site before The main dish:

Original Macintosh - Anecdotes about the development of Apple's original Macintosh, and the people who made it.


Symbol for keys:

Command (or Cmd) ⌘
Shift ⇧
Option (or Alt) ⌥
Control (or Ctrl) ⌃
Caps Lock ⇪
Fn

⌥+⇧+] for typing (instead of normal ').

Faster key response

I really cannot live without this.

defaults write -g KeyRepeat -int 2
defaults write -g InitialKeyRepeat -int 12

numbers mean:

KeyRepeat: 120, 90, 60, 30, 12, 6, 2
InitialKeyRepeat: 120, 94, 68, 35, 25, 15
lower equals faster

Sudo with Touch ID

Add this line to /etc/pam.d/sudo:

auth       sufficient     pam_tid.so

For better headlphone performance.

sudo defaults write bluetoothaudiod "Enable AptX codec" -bool true
sudo defaults write bluetoothaudiod "Enable AAC codec" -bool true
