2 : Install Git and wget

brew install git
brew install wget 

3 : Install  RVM (  ruby version manager ) for installing ruby

rvm requirements 
brew install autoconf automake libtool libyaml readline libksba openssl
rvm install ruby-1.9.3
rvm gemset create msf
rvm use [email protected] --default

for installing metasploit framework i like to keep things cleaner , means convention over configuration for that i will create a folder under root Directory called  “/opt ”  then inside that i will install metasploit framework , it’s better to visualize the folder structure

$ sudo su 
# mkdir -p /opt/
# cd /opt 
# git clone https://github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework.git msf

Download Source from github
