TL;DR: If the standard terminal commands don’t work for uninstalling and reinstalling the Xcode CLI tools, use this page and search for the latest version of the tools to download. You don’t need a developer account to access it.
If you work both in a terminal and on a Mac, then you’re likely familiar with the Xcode Command Line Tools (and the necessary utilities they provide for things like Git, building front-end assets, etc.).
If you’re not familiar, here’s the gist:
[Command Line Tools] enables UNIX-style development via Terminal by installing command line developer tools, as well ass macOS SDK frameworks and headers. Many useful tools are included such as the Apple eLLVM compiler, linker, and Make.
If you’ve installed Node via Homebrew and, at any point, are trying to execute a shell script to start up a containerized environment (or maybe something else – I’m speaking solely from my experience) and you’re presented with this message or something like it:
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/icu4c/lib/libicui18n.64.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/node

It is a blog, sure, but it is also a wiki. It’s a spot where I can post ideas, snippets, resources, thoughts, collections, and other bits and pieces that I find interesting and useful. Instead of always being a “performance” level of blogging, it can be a looser more human endeavor that drops the idea of robots sorting the content (in this case simply by date created) and embraces the idea of curation, by me, for you.
