> I've added Directory Studio to MacPorts, so it can be easily installed from the command
line. Please consider mentioning this as an alternative to the manual download on []
> Background: Macports will not compile Studio from source but merely download and install
from the DMG at []
.It will use any existing JDK 8+ it can find on the client and only install OpenJDK11 as a
fallback if required. 
> From a support and troubleshooting perspective, an install via MacPorts is equal to a
manual install and should not trigger side effects that would not happen otherwise. 
> From a end user perspective, the MacPorts install offers dependency handling and integrated
updates. There's also no need to CTRL-Right-Click to open Studio the first time after a download.
> The port file can be found at []
