These are the installation instructions for installing Tor on Apple's macOS without the Tor Browser Bundle (TBB).
For most users the installation of the Tor Browser Bundle is all they need to browse the web anonymously or to let another app connect to the internet over Tor. You can find further information about the Tor Browser and download links for iOS, macOS, Windows and Linux/Unix here.
Even though the Tor Browser comes with a Tor installation, it will only run as long as you keep the Tor Browser open. The following instructions will set up Tor without graphical interface or a browser.

This can be especially usefull if you want to host onion services on your Mac or relay traffic for other Tor users.
