I know a lot of people don’t like one-line installers because of their insecure nature of not understanding what it does, but a one-line is just nicer when trying out ipfs, when you just want to do it quickly!
Would it be an idea to make a one-line installer?
Here is for Mac:
curl https://dist.ipfs.io/go-ipfs/v0.4.2/go-ipfs_v0.4.2_darwin-amd64.tar.gz >> /tmp/ipfs.tar.gz && tar zxf /tmp/ipfs.tar.gz && mv /tmp/go-ipfs/ipfs /usr/local/bin/ipfs && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/ipfs && ipfs version
