I'm typically Vim developer. Lately, due to the fact that I'm doing more Java / JVM Language development, and thanks to the awesomeness of IntelliJ IDEA, I've been working more in IDEs. I've even come to trust IDEA's Git integration. That said, I still do a lot at the command line, and really like launching a version-control-aware visual diff tool from the command line. Meld is my go-to in Linux, and since it's available for OS X via Homebrew (Brew), I figured I'd set it up on my Mac.
Since I'm blogging about what should be a trivial thing, you may have guessed that I encountered problems. Indeed, I did, and here's how I got around said problems.
While I can develop on shared resources with other developers, it's often handy to be able to quickly configure and deploy a set of VMs on my MacBook to test things out in a throw-away environment where I can't step on others' toes.
