Overview

Homebrew is a command line utility designed to streamline the installation of various libraries and utilities that you might need to run certain applications, but have not been included in your macOS installation by default.

The both application provides you with access to a large collection of packages which you can browse using the command line, or by making use of online resources such as the Braumeister website.

To deploy Homebrew on your Mac, you can manually download the source code archive and install wherever you like, or you can run the command provided by the development team in Terminal window (will place Homebrew in the /usr/local folder):

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"

The macOS command line and shell script ecosystem would be a barren wasteland without Homebrew. Which is better? Homebrew or MacPorts? Both have their pros & cons, so I use them both, but I prefer Homebrew and use MacPorts only for the stuff that isn't available via Homebrew. Must-have for anyone who ventures beneath the GUI.

The easiest way to install Homebrew is via the Terminal while logged into your Admin account: /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"
