Get Version



Allows your company to describe a recipe of applictions, RubyGems, preferences and more to be installed or configured on each OS X machine.

For clean, new machines this means it will install and configure all required applications and services to get a machine ready for development or use.

For existing machines, it allows the organisation to centrally manage the suite of applications (free or licensed) and preferences for all machines, with individual users being allowed to override or extend the recipe for individual preferences.


sudo gem install noober

The basics

Noober development is pre-alpha and how the recipe creation, bundling and executing will be supported is in a high state of change.

How to submit patches

You can fetch the source from either:

How to submit patches

git clone git://
git clone git://

Build and test instructions
