As seasoned developers, we make a lot of assumptions as to the experience of others in the tech community.
My talented designer mate Alan wanted to launch a new website, his initial thought was a WordPress site but:
Friends don't let friends use WordPress
Alan wanted to get Statamic running locally but getting a modern PHP application configured with composer etc can be a lot to take in and learn to build a quick website.
So, I wrote this script that does much of the heavy lifting for you.

To use the script - and there's no easier way I can think of for this:
1. download the script to your Mac's home directory
2. open terminal.app
3. type this command that changes the permissions on the script for it to run
4. execute the script
This should get you running locally with your first Statamic 3 site.
Tooling for modern web development can be rough, hopefully, this script eases the initial setup pain.
Next up, I'll give some options for deploying to a live web server.
Thanks for reading.
