How to install developer tools on Mac without Xcode
I’ve mentioned it multiple times in previous posts, but I feel like writing this post so I can just link to it when needed.
What are developer tools? Developer tools are a collection of commands (more than 50) that are commonly used by developers, such as
perl and other similar commands.
To install them, run:
xcode-select --install xcode-select: note: install requested for command line tools
A new window should appear. Click on the Install button and wait for it to finish installing.
Now, when you run that command again, you’ll get this:
xcode-select --install xcode-select: error: command line tools are already installed, use "Software Update" to install updates
That means they were successfully installed.
That’s really it! If you were following a guide, click here to go back.
