PageKite for Mac OS

In a Terminal window, run the following command:

$ curl -O https://pagekite.net/pk/pagekite.py
$ chmod +x pagekite.py
$ sudo mv -f pagekite.py /usr/local/bin

Both of the above methods will download and install the latest version of pagekite.py for use on the command-line. You can re-run the commands at any time to upgrade.
