  • HomeBrew

    🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    Project mention: The Disappointing | | 2024-02-26

    IIRC he stepped away from Homebrew years ago. See

  • Homebrew-cask

    🍻 A CLI workflow for the administration of macOS applications distributed as binaries

    Project mention: Calibre – New in Calibre 7.0 | | 2023-11-18

    Using Homebrew Cask for Calibre actually makes the problem worse because the download is consistently very slow for some people. For me, it took around an hour the last time I had it installed on my Mac.

  • PopRuby

    PopRuby: Clothing and Accessories for Ruby Developers. Fashion meets Ruby! Shop our fun Ruby-inspired apparel and accessories designed to celebrate the joy and diversity of the Ruby community.

  • homebrew-core

    🍻 Default formulae for the missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    Project mention: Cowsay | | 2024-03-02

    definitely be careful about using fortune in a corporate environment or public space if you don't know what dat files you are using or you might just get an extremely unwelcome surprise.

    I was practicing a presentation and used to use "fortune" all the time. I forget exactly what it output but I remember being absolutely mortified about what could have happened if that had popped up during an internal company tech talk.

    Kudos to brew for keeping unsuspecting people safe

  • homebrew-bundle

    📦 Bundler for non-Ruby dependencies from Homebrew, Homebrew Cask and the Mac App Store.

    Project mention: How do you setup a new Mac? | | 2024-01-28

    I maintain a Brewfile ( which contains the majority of the non-project specific applications that I like to install on any new Mac:

    What's really nice is the `cask` & `mas` keywords allow you to install .dmg files & directly from the App Store.


    While its not included in there yet, I've been experimenting with maintaining a private Homebrew tap which contains my ~/bin directory as opposed to shell aliases.

  • homebrew-cask-fonts

    🖋 Casks of F🅾𝓝𝐓𝚂

    Project mention: SN Pro Typeface | | 2024-02-23

    Tobias here. Seems like `homebrew/cask-fonts` is the best way to go for Homebrew, but even the repo maintainers suggest that submission to Google Fonts is their desired method to be included [1]. Once / if SN Pro garners more mainstream popularity we will start supporting more methods of distribution.


  • homebrew-php

    :beer: Homebrew tap for PHP 5.6 to 8.4. PHP 8.4 is built nightly. (by shivammathur)

  • homebrew-emacs-plus

    Emacs Plus formulae for the Homebrew package manager

    Project mention: Flakes aren't real and cannot hurt you: using Nix flakes the non-flake way | | 2024-01-09

    I am intrigued by this line in the description:

    "Super Fast Emacs: Bleeding edge Emacs that fixes itself, thanks to a community overlay"

    Could you possibly tell me (or link to the explanation) what's special about that Emacs instance? (I'll update this comment if I find a link myself)

    I use this homebrew cask and have been very happy with it thus far, but I'm always up for some new exploration.

    Project mention: Apple Seeds Second Beta of macOS Ventura 13.3 to Developers (build: 22E5230e) | /r/MacOSBeta | 2023-03-04 -> that would brew install safari-technology-preview then, remembered it right.

  • homebrew-extensions

    :beers: Homebrew tap for PHP extensions

    Project mention: PHP extension activation | /r/PHPhelp | 2023-04-03

    Maybe you could use Homebrew to install PHP and pre-compiled extensions - see

  • homebrew-zathura

    Homebrew formulae to build Zathura on Mac OS X

    Project mention: Hey anyone know how I can read a PDF file? I am having the following error | /r/Zathura | 2023-06-06

    I am running macOS 12.6.1 on a MacBook Air. I installed Zathura using the instructions on zegervdv Github repository - First used brew tap to include the repository, then brew install and finally linked the mupdf plugin.

  • homebrew-dotnet-sdk-versions

    dotnet-sdk versions HomeBrew Tap

    GNU Emacs formula for the Homebrew package manager

  • homebrew-riscv

    homebrew (macOS) packages for RISC-V toolchain

    Project mention: How to ask for help in this group. (This basic formula works well for most OTHER groups, too.) | /r/RISCV | 2023-04-02

    My GNU toolchain successfully creates other executables and is sourced from the trusted GNU homebrew project at and was updated yesterday. The affected versions are:

  • homebrew-graph

    Creates a dependency graph of Homebrew formulae.

  • homebrew-php-ext

    🐘🌐 Core PHP extension formulae not suitable for Homebrew/core

  • homebrew-portable-ruby

    🚗 Versions of Ruby that can be installed and run from anywhere on the filesystem.

  • homebrew-tap

    Homebrew Tap of HashiCorp products and tools (by hashicorp)

    Project mention: Homebrew deprecate and add caveat for HashiCorp | | 2023-10-08

    Note for whatever it is worth that the Homebrew-owned version rebuilds these from source -- This is also typical in the Linux packaging ecosystem, but typically involving packaging dependencies explicitly too, which is likely why Vault &co never landed in a distro's package set prior to the license change.

    The Hashicorp variants copy the release builds:

  • brewdo

    sandboxing for Homebrew

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
