My Macbook doesn't have terminal


I just completed the SQL course and I want to ensure I keep on practicing but my MacBook doesn’t have terminal. This maybe a v silly question. But does anyone know if I just download it from app store ? there are just so many variations of the terminal app !!

What’s the OS version? From what I understand is a built-in (I could be wrong though). You should be able to find it with Spotlight search, under Launchpad apps or buried in Applications-Utilities somewhere (have a web search to check).

A fairly popular alternative seems to be iTerm2 but it’s far from the only one. If you don’t like the built-in then have a look around for popular options but the built-in would be the simplest.

Terminal is included in the OS. Look under Applications > Utilities.
