For those who are users of Linux systems, one of the tools you will surely enjoy with macOS is the terminal. However, on macOS, this terminal is not as complete as the one that comes with Linux distributions. There are commands that are simply not available.
As a solution, there is Homebrew! Today we teach how you can install this tool on the new macOS Catalina 10.15.
Have you tried running the wget command on the macOS terminal? And the powerful nmap? Yeah… the macOS terminal doesn't know them, but they can be easily added.
How to install Homebrew on macOS Catalina 10.15?
Installing Homebrew on macOS Catalina 10.15 is a relatively simple task. To do this simply follow the following steps:
/ usr / bin / ruby -e "$ (curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Note: If you do not have Xcode installed, the script will download.
Browse apps with Homebrew
Once you've installed the package manager, simply use the brew search command to find what we want. Let's look for wget using the brew search nmap command.
Install apps with Homebrew
To install one of these packages, simply use the brew install command. For example, to install nmap just run the brew cask install zenmap command.
If you install other tools and do not know the syntax for use, you can always access the manual using the man command (eg man nmap). For Homebrew you can use the brew help command to find out how you can use it.
With the brew list command you can access the list of available packages. Obviously, by updating repositories, they can install other apps.
For other operations at brew package manager level you can always consult the official documentation on here. Give it a try and any questions or concerns leave in the comments.
