I want to know best practice for running a local Umbraco on a mac, where all the files a placed on the mac filesystem, and not inside windows.
Right now I have a Windows 8 running through Parallels Desktop, with IIS and MSSQL Express, but if I put the Umbraco files in my Mac filesystem, and link the IIS solution to the files on the mac, I can make it work, but it is really slow. Like 10-15 seconds every time I refresh the browser.
The reason I want the files on my mac is so I can use all the Mac apps like Sublime Text, Github for Mac and have a Grunt task running with SASS and Livereload.
I have heard that some have better luck with VMWare? Now I have tried with a SQL CE database instead, but doesn't seem to perform any better.
I saw this be done by the presenters/speakers at the Umbraco Festival last friday, and it seemed to be running without problems. So how do people do this? How do mac users set up a staging environment? :)
