The Sileo and Procursus package manager will be soon move towards Macs running Big Sur. It will be available for Intel-based Macs as well as M1-based Macs.
Sileo arriving on the Mac will allow third-party software and tweaks much like the tweaks available for a jailbroken iPhone. It is also under development as an alternative to the popular package manager, Homebrew. An advantage of Sileo over other Mac package managers is that it has a graphical interface which makes it very user-friendly. @HackedByApple also shared a screenshot showing Sileo running macOS Big Sur.

According to @Diatrus, Procursus and Sileo on Mac will also pave the way for other packages to come on iOS. While not mentioned, it could also allow users to download iOS apps to their M1 Macs. The arrival of Sileo and Procursus on Mac could also make it easier to install the Checkra1n and Odyssey jailbreak companion tool on Mac.
Sileo is currently the default package manager for the Chimera and Odyssey jailbreak. It’s written entirely in Swift by the Electra team and provides a much better experience than Cydia. It was developed as an alternative to Cydia which is no longer actively updating, resulting in a host of issues.
Are you excited about the arrival of Sileo and Procursus on Mac?
