If you’d like to install render50 on your own Mac or PC, so that you can render PDFs without using CS50 IDE, you’ll need a command-line environment:

  • If running Linux or the like, you already have one! Open a terminal window in your usual way.

  • If running Mac OS, you already have one! Open Applications > Utilities > Terminal.

  • If running Windows, you’ll need to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux, which is only supported on Windows 10. Once installed, run bash.
