Homebrew 2.1.11 released, package manager on MacOS

Homebrew

Homebrew is the suite manager on MacOS, it will install the package to a separate directory, and link the file to /usr/local all files will be installed in the pre-defined directory, without worrying about Homebrew installation location.

Feature

  • installs the stuff you need that Apple didn’t.
  • installs packages to their own directory and then symlinks their files into /usr/local.
  • won’t install files outside its prefix, and you can place a Homebrew installation wherever you like.
  • Trivially create your own Homebrew packages
  • It’s all Git and Ruby underneath, so hack away with the knowledge that you can easily revert your modifications and merge upstream updates.
  • formulae are simple Ruby scripts
  • complements macOS. Install your gems with gem, and their dependencies with brew.
  • “To install, drag this icon…” no more. brew cask installs macOS apps, fonts and plugins and other non-open source software
  • Making a cask is as simple as creating a formula
