The missing package manager for OS X

Homebrew

Homebrew helps you install the UNIX tools that didn’t come with OS X.

Quick Install

Install Xcode and then run this script: http://gist.github.com/323731

If you want to install Homebrew somewhere other than /usr/local see the installation instructions.

Look dude, I know what I’m doing!

Alright then… as long as you’re sure:

cd /usr/local
sudo chown -R $USER .
curl -Lsf http://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/tarball/master | tar xz --strip 1
