The same can also be achieved by running the command npm init in your project folder. This will start an interactive prompt with questions that will result in the output of a package.json in your project folder.
The standard OSX terminal is not really the optimal solution when working a lot with the terminal.
Because of that I would recommend to install iTerm2 in combination with oh-my-zsh to have a better user experience.
Download oh-my-zsh via curl sh -c “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)”
Open iTerm and access the options via i + CMD
Go to the Color tab and select a Color presets that you like. I prefer Solarized Dark.
Download a Powerline compatible font to work with the oh-my-zsh theme Agnostic. I prefer Meslo LG M DZ Regular for Powerline.
You can download it here
Go back to the iTerm preferences and to the Text tab.
Change the Font and the Non-ASCII Font options to your new font.
Now change the oh-my-zsh theme to Agnostic by editing the file ~/.zshrc via nano or vim.
to ZSH_THEME=”agnoster” Or to any oh-my-zsh theme you like.
You can find a huge collection here.
Restart iTerm and your .zshrc changes should be applied.

For me the later is definitely the case.
From time to time I just love to go into a tunnel and shut everything out with some good tunes.
Not any kind of music though. Lyrics are definitely distracting and pop music would go on my nerves within a minute.
For me Deep House or Electronic Ambient works the best.
Music that is neither annoying, nor irritating.
YouTube is my goto-source to find new tracks from that genre.
It is simply amazing how much variety is available.
From single tracks to full albums to custom mixes.
