How to install development tools on Ubuntu with a single bash command


Every now and then we have to establish a new development environment on our machine. Installing lots of tools can get really cumbersome as we are obliged to remember what we need and in what order the installations should be run. In this post I will show you an example bash script that I use for installing a base set of tools. The script can be easily customized and you can fork it on GitHub and adjust to your needs. I strongly recommend using this in your company to make sure that every programmer will be able to install all tools required to work on a given project in a matter of minutes.
