:1234: Versioned formulae for the Homebrew package manager

3 years after

Homebrew-versions

These formulae provide multiple versions of existing packages, or newer versions of packages that are too incompatible to go in Homebrew/homebrew yet (Such as GnuPG21).

How do I install these formulae?

Just brew tap homebrew/versions and then brew install <formula>.

If the formula conflicts with one from Homebrew/homebrew or another tap, you can brew install homebrew/versions/<formula>.

You can also install via URL:

brew install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/homebrew-versions/master/<formula>.rb

Acceptable Formulae.

Please note that homebrew/versions is currently in the process of major changes in what we support, how long for and on what basis.

Versions is not intended to be used for all and any old versions you personally require for xyz project; formulae submitted here should be expected to be used by a reasonable number of people and supported by contributors long-term.

You may wish to consider hosting your own tap for formulae you wish to personally support that do not meet the above standards.

You can read Homebrew’s Acceptable Formulae document here. There are some differences between Homebrew/homebrew and here:

  • Versions formulae must not exceed +/-2 versions from the current stable release.
  • Versions formulae usually do not have head or devel sections.
  • Versions formulae can depend on other versions formulae.
  • If copied from Homebrew/homebrew prior formulae please remove any deprecated options and fix any issues raised by brew audit --strict.
  • If a newer/older version exists in Homebrew/homebrew please add a conflicts_with line, like this.

Troubleshooting

First, please run brew update and brew doctor.

Second, read the Troubleshooting Checklist.

If you don’t read these it will take us far longer to help you with your problem.
