The imagesnap tarball comes with a prebuilt binary. Give the option to use it instead of building it yourself.
This is especially useful for those without XCode.
imagesnap formula: give option to install pre-built binary
If this download includes a pre-built binary, then perhaps we should stop packaging it, especially since it requires Xcode in the first place.
how do you give the option to --no-build?
The pull request hasn't been merged, so the option isn't available.
But you can just download the tar from http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/iharder/imagesnap/ImageSnap-v0.2.5.tgz unpack it and copy the included binary to /usr/local/bin
thanks michihuber. I have done that, however 'brew upgrade' wont be effective on imagesnap unless it is installed by brew.
Since Homebrew's charter is to install from source when possible, passing on this. Self-updating binaries can just be installed by downloading from a website.
