ctags setup on mac

ctags setup on mac

# you have ctags but it does not work...
$ ctags -R --exclude=.git --exclude=log *
ctags: illegal option -- R
usage: ctags [-BFadtuwvx] [-f tagsfile] file ...

#you need to get new ctags, i recommend homebrew but anything will work
$ brew install ctags

#alias ctags if you used homebrew
$ alias ctags="`brew --prefix`/bin/ctags"

#try again!
ctags -R --exclude=.git --exclude=log *

#puts tags file into you .gitignore (probably global) and you're all set!

#PS. i was inspired to install ctags by video by @r00k, thanks man!
