An overview of Homebrew (the MacOS package manager) from my perspective and experience.

thumbnail for Homebrew

I use Homebrew to install dependencies on my MacOS machines.

I generate a Brewfile in ~/dotfiles and run brew install from within that folder. I generate the file by running the following in a terminal:

md-tangle <PATH TO VAULT>/42\ -\ Dotfiles/Homebrew.md

Packages I Install

brew "ccat"


Raycast is the system launcher I use (as an alternative to Spotlight or Alfred)

brew "raycast"

VS Code

30 - Collections/Software/VS Code is the primary editor I use.

cask "visual-studio-code"
