I use an iMac (2017, 27 inches) and a MacBook Pro (2013,13 inches) for software development and UI design. My work is remote 90% of the time and I use GitHub and other cloud services for sync.
Problem: The problem I'm facing is that my iMac and MacBook both need to have the same software suites like Xcode, Adobe Suite, etc. to run the projects themselves. I have to keep multiple licenses of same software, not to mention my MacBook has only 128 GB and only 4 GB RAM, it takes a hell load of time to compile the same application too.
What I have tried:
- Screen Mirroring: Numerous screen sharing services (Native screen/file/remote sharing, Screens Viewer, Team Viewer, many others!) but the lag is HUGE and the aspect ratio is completely messed up to the point that I cannot see text.
- Server OS: Bought MacOS server with a hope to have complete "native" file system and application (Xcode, Photoshop) access from my MacBook but it doesn't let me access the whole file system and 0 application access even as an admin with login privileges granted.
Can anyone direct me to a solution that I can use?
