Install Wget Mac Homebrew

Homebrew complements macOS (or your Linux system). Install your RubyGems with gem and their dependencies with brew. “To install, drag this icon” no more. Homebrew Cask installs macOS apps, fonts and plugins and other non-open source software. $ brew install -cask firefox. Making a cask is as simple as creating a formula. If not already handled by the Homebrew installation, install a current macOS platform SDK (only macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 or later is supported): xcode-select -install Create a build directory inside the obs-studio directory, change to it, then configure the project via cmake.

Install wget mac homebrew software

macOS Mojave, Sierra, and earlier versions come with the command line utility called ‘curl‘ which is a network transfer tool, it does not come with the popular ‘wget‘, in fact, ‘curl‘ can probably get you by just fine, check man curl at the command line to see its usage.

Otherwise, let’s look at getting ‘wget‘… this can be done in 2 ways.

1 – Install from HomeBrew

2 – Compile from Source

To add and install wget to your system you need to download the source files, compile the code and make an install. To compile the code you need a compiler, unfortunately, it doesn’t come with macOS by default you need to install the free Xcode suite from Apple which includes the GCC compiler. This process also works exactly the same in previous macOS and OSX versions.

Get Xcode

Get the latest via Xcode via iTunes.

Next you need to install the Xcode command line tools, easiest way to do so by running in the Terminal:

Using curl to get wget

Install Wget Mac Homebrew App

Get the latest wget source code from the ftp repository, or using curl from the command line:

Install Wget Mac Homebrew Free

Extract it and move into it

Configure and Install it

an error may occur on SSL…

wget needs to have some type of SSL support GNUTLS is most probably not available on your OS X system – if so use OpenSSL in the configure as an alternative use so re-run the configure with an SSL flag:

That’s it done, wget will be installed in:

Wget Mac Terminal

Clean Up

Remove the source code and compressed file:

Test wget

Everything should work out fine – if you need to install more Unix style tools it will be faster and better to install a Package Manager for OSX like Homebrew – it makes installing and maintaining these applications so easy,
