1. Set Up AppGyver Steroids on Your Development Machine

Go to, click the Get Started button, and follow the steps to set up your environment. If you’re developing on Windows, you’ll need to install Git, Python, and Node.js which are all very easy and quick to do with the installers. You’ll then install Steroids by running the command

On Windows, when you save a file using the Save As dialog, you normally get some reset shortcuts or places on the left side of the window. These places may not be what you’d like them to be.

I recently need to set up a wire transfer on and it asked me to enter a SafePass code that was supposed to have been texted to me from the short code 73981. After many attempts, I was unable to receive the text / SMS even though I can receive them perfectly fine from a regular phone number. It turns out that T-Mobile blocks content downloads by default. To fix this issue, I needed to unblock content downloads by unchecking the check box next to the service. Once I did that, I was able to receive message from short codes and the Bank of America SafePass code.
