Warning Malware!

That is what OS X Catalina will tell you if you follow the instructions above. This is a false positive! We can guarantee that there is no malware in Mako Server. The simplest way to bypass this on Catalina is to use the following download instructions. Simply copy the instructions below and paste into a Terminal window.

cd ~ mkdir mako cd mako curl -o mako.mac.x64.zip makoserver.net/download/mako.mac.x64.zip unzip mako.mac.x64.zip rm mako.mac.x64.zip

After running the above, we recommend installing Mako Server as follows (type these commands):

sudo mkdir /usr/local/bin/ #if not already created sudo mv mako mako.zip /usr/local/bin/

When the above commands are executed and assuming you are still in directory ~/mako, run the tutorials as follows:

mako -l::tutorial/DownloadTutorials.zip
