Are there any resources, instructions, best practices, etc, for installing via automated management tools a la JAMF, BigFix, AirWatch, etc?

No matter how I skin this cat, it never works right. Either it won't launch, it launches in read-only mode (despite being in the /Applications directory), or the developer signature won't verify.

Why does it seem like if I do anything other than the drag and drop, the app package just falls apart?

You can use the Homebrew package manager for macOS.

There is a "cask" for SageMath:

Install Homebrew, then just run the following in a terminal:

 brew cask install sage

This installs the latest version of the SageMath app for you.

For more ways to install, see the SageMath Distribution page on the SageMath wiki.

I installed it via Homebrew. However I'm experiencing problems when trying to download a notebook as a pdf (via LATEX) file. It tells me: nbconvert failed: Pandoc wasn't found. Please check that pandoc is installed:

However pandoc is installed. In fact if in a terminal I write jupyter nbconvert --to pdf filename.ipynb I correctly generate a pdf file.

Probably you have pandoc installed for your system-wide Python but not for SageMath's Python.

To install pandoc for Sage's Python, open a terminal and run

sage -pip install pandoc

Thanks! Actually I have a (common) Pip problem with SSL certificates. pip is configured with locations that require TLS/SSL, however the ssl module in Python is not available. I'll try to fix this issue even if it is not so simple. Thanks again!
