Simple mac-way Install without installer
Simple mac-way Install without installer, run with .app, download additional components in VS directory.

Strongly agree! There is no point to write to system directory, which requires Admin authorization, for VS Mac to run.

Voted. VS in a single folder will be excellent.
Actually I'd rather see an approach like the Visual Studio 2017 installer, where installs, updates, and additional workloads are installed via an installer App.

We're working on improving this. Stay tuned. :)
up voting - because the install update issue is a real issue.
I lost internet access halfway through installation and now I don't know which components are installed and which aren't. In addition I was notified that there was Xamarin Profiler update, but when I went to install it I got this message "Failed to start update installer". A simple, contained, mac-style installer would be great--also, would make uninstall easier.

I think at least they should provide the uninstall script as Xamarin did.
