[tor-relays] Thoughts on automatically updating tor software on macos High Sierra

Hello list,

So for a while I have been struggling to find a way to automatically update the tor relay software on macOS High Sierra. What I am currently doing is running a batch file that runs the command “brew upgrade tor” continuously. However, I am attempting to find a way to do this automatically on macos High Sierra where the process doesn’t have to be running  every second.

Here’s the unfortunate thing, on the newest macos operating systems, it appears there is no possible way to run terminal commands automatically, as crontab has been disabled / removed from newer mac operating systems (I discussed this with Apple technical support) and applications to run scripts automatically are incompatible with newer macos.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated, thank you.
