At work, I have to manage several Office 365 tenants. While many tasks can be completed via the GUI, there are times PowerShell commands are required. That is fine on a Windows 10 computer, since PowerShell is part of the operating system.
However, I prefer to use the company’s iMac. While I was working on an issue with one of our clients, I found an article from Microsoft about using homebrew to install a PowerShell module on macOS!
When I started in IT, I don’t think that would have ever happened.
At work, I was scripting the connection to an FTP server and downloading a website backup.
However, the command-line FTP app was removed from recent versions of macOS. A conversation on Stack Exchange explained how to download and install the command-line FTP application.
Now the pieces are in place and that task is automated!
