Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
The Mac comes with a lot of command line tools, but sometimes you may need a tool that Apple doesn’t ship with OS X. In a previous Terminal 101, we showed you how to install a command line browser with MacPorts, but we didn’t really cover it in detail. Today, however, we want to share two command line package managers: Homebrew and MacPorts.
