Get **xy on your Mac

I often have a tough time getting over my addiction to common Unix commands on my MacBook. No longer!

Rudix! provides a collection of pre-built Unix software delivered as packages for OS X: “The hassle-free way to get Unix programs on OS X”.

Install Rudix in one line using:

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rudix-mac/rpm/2015.4/rudix.py | sudo python - install rudix

Use rudix search to search for packages. And mine first package installation starts with:

sudo rudix install wget

And head over to Rudix! • Packages to checkout the whole treasure of unix commands ported over for the Mac!
