The macOS command line and shell script ecosystem would be a barren wasteland without Homebrew. Which is better? Homebrew or MacPorts? Both have their pros & cons, so I use them both, but I prefer Homebrew and use MacPorts only for the stuff that isn't available via Homebrew. Must-have for anyone who ventures beneath the GUI.

The easiest way to install Homebrew is via the Terminal while logged into your Admin account: /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"
