PowerShell on Mac OS X and other non-Windows systems

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/17

I wasn’t expecting it to be so easy to install PowerShell on Mac OS X:

brew install Caskroom/cask/powershell

In the background it executes this script: https://github.com/caskroom/homebrew-cask/blob/master/Casks/powershell.rb. which indirectly goes through the URL template https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/releases/download/v#{version}/powershell-#{version}.pkg.

On other non-Windows systems, you have to go through GitHub yourself: https://github.com/powershell/PowerShell. The PowerShell team at Microsoft has many more repositories including the Win32-OpenSSH port which you can find through https://github.com/PowerShell.

At the time of writing, PowerShell was available for these platforms:

Platform Downloads How to Install
Windows 10 / Server 2016 (x64) .msi Instructions
Windows 8.1 / Server 2012 R2 (x64) .msi Instructions
Windows 7 (x64) .msi Instructions
Windows 7 (x86) .msi Instructions
Ubuntu 16.04 .deb Instructions
Ubuntu 14.04 .deb Instructions
CentOS 7 .rpm Instructions
OpenSUSE 42.1 .rpm Instructions
Arch Linux Instructions
Many Linux distributions .AppImage Instructions
macOS 10.11 .pkg Instructions
Docker Instructions

The first version I installed on Mac OS X was this: ==> Downloading https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/releases/download/v6.0.0-alpha.17/powershell-6.0.0-alpha.17.pkg

By now I really hope it is out of Alpha state.

SD cards solutions to add 256 gigabyte to your non USB-C Retina MacBook

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/12

I was asked what I used to extend my Retina Macbook storage. Mine still has an SD-card slot so the sit flush solutions below work fine.

I could have used USB-3 to micro-SD card adapters that sit flush.

There are no USB-C to micro-SD adapters that sit flush, so they do not work for more modern Retina MacBook devices.
