Getting started with homebrew
Homebrew can be installed using the following command in the terminal:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
It runs as the current user; you don’t need to use
sudo. The script can be viewed online and will print a summary of what it’ll do before actually doing it.
You then have to add
/usr/local/bin to your
PATH if it’s not already there. Run the following command to check:
If you don’t see
/usr/local/bin in the output you’ll have to add it. Open your
~/.bash_profile file in an editor and add the following lines at the end:
# Add Homebrew prefix to the PATH export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"
source ~/.bash_profile. The
brew command should now be available:
brew search [TEXT|/REGEX/] brew (info|home|options) [FORMULA...] brew install FORMULA... brew update brew upgrade [FORMULA...] brew uninstall FORMULA... brew list [FORMULA...]
brew config brew doctor brew install -vd FORMULA
Developers: brew create [URL [–no-fetch]] brew edit [FORMULA…]
