The missing package manager for OS X.

5 years after

Homebrew

Features and usage are summarized on the homepage.

Quick Install to /usr/local

This script will prompt for confirmation before it does anything:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsS http://gist.github.com/raw/323731/install_homebrew.rb)"

Afterwards, install Xcode.

Umm… I thought I could install it anywhere?

Indeed, you can. Refer to our complete installation instructions.

Dude! Just give me a one-liner!

Okay then, but please note this installs Homebrew as root and we recommend against that.

curl -LsSf http://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/tarball/master | sudo tar xvz -C/usr/local --strip 1
