use curl on mac (wget not available out of the box)
I think wget/curl isn't the only problem with the installation. Slate should be in a .dmg that you open and then move to the /Application folder yourself, like we've been doing it with every other Mac app for the last decade.
ok, just a minor issue.
Good call on both accounts. I am merging this pull request and I created Issue #96 to track the DMG installation.
Thanks for your help!
