Homebrew Instant Client

A tap of Mac Homebrew formulas for Oracle Instant Client and related downloads.

Due to difficulties downloading the files from Instant Client Downloads page the process can not be automated. However, if the files are downloaded manually and put in the cache then Homebrew can do the rest. You will need at least the instantclient-basic file downloaded to $HOME/Library/Caches/Homebrew and then any additional files such as sqlplus related ones.

Usage

$ brew install InstantClientTap/instantclient/<formula>

Where <formula> is one of the formulas listed in the Formula/ directory. For example instantclient-sqlplus would require

$ brew install InstantClientTap/instantclient/instantclient-sqlplus

You could also tap the repository before installing. This is equivalent to the calls above:

$ brew tap InstantClientTap/instantclient
$ brew install <formula>

Installing libraries which depend on Instant Client Basic Lite

When installing libraries which depend on Basic Lite you might need to specify the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. E.g. in order to install ruby-oci8 older than 2.2.0 you will need to execute

$ DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$(brew --prefix)/lib gem install ruby-oci8

You can also set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH globally but this is discouraged and is known to break things.
