On Mac, the alternative to service and systemctl is launchctl. I don’t really like it and am wondering if I can install systemctl onto my Mac. Is it possible, and if so, how can I do it?


No, Systemd, which systemctl is a part of, is a service manager designed specifically for Linux and uses interfaces and constructs specific to it such as cgroups. There is no port of it to Mac OS.
