It’s called HOMEBREW and it brings the sweetness and ease of installing packages just like APT or YUM does on Linux.
How do you install HOMEBREW?
Open your favorite terminal app, either the one that comes with MacOS or my favorite iTerm2 and execute this command:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Now you should update Homebrew and you do it with this command:
And you can install any program/software. On this example I’m going to install Apache, PHP 7, MySQL:
brew install apache2 php70 mysql
This will proceed to install all the required dependencies for each of the software we are installing and that are NOT currently installed on the server.
After it is installed all software is saved the following directory:
