    🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    I haven’t seen any command line utilities that are installed via snap, they are all GUI apps. My bigger complaint is app quality. I’ve always used MacOS on the desktop before and Apple provides very good utilities with the base OS, so anything sold on the store needs to be better or serve novel purpose. Apple doesn’t have a CLI store so most people use Home Brew (https://brew.sh ). The utilities included with Ubuntu are much weaker than Mac and there really isn’t much difference between flatpak or snap apps. App delivery method always feels like a religious argument to me, one that ignores the product being delivered.
