I install MacTeX basic package and then install context by tlmgr. How do I install third-party modules?

share|improve this question
tlmgr should be able to install ConTeXt packages as well. For example tlmgr context-simplefonts will install the simplefonts module. – Aditya Mar 27 '12 at 5:29
Thanks it works. However could you show me how to search for context packages only using tlmgr? – Tuan Anh Tran Mar 28 '12 at 6:37
Most context packages are named context-<modulename>. The easiest way to search is to look at the TeX Catalogue entry for ConTeXt or look at the third party module page on ConTeXt garden. – Aditya Mar 28 '12 at 12:51

In TeX Live, ConTeXt modules are names as context-<modulename>. You can use the TeX Live manager tlmgr to install any TeX Live package. So, you can install a ConTeXt module using

tlmgr install context-<modulename>
