Homebrew-Cask

“To install, drag this icon…” no more!

Homebrew-Cask extends Homebrew and brings its elegance, simplicity, and speed to the installation and management of GUI macOS applications such as Google Chrome and Adium.

We do this by providing a friendly Homebrew-style CLI workflow for the administration of macOS applications distributed as binaries.

It’s implemented as a homebrew external command called cask.

==> Moving App 'Atom.app' to '/Applications/Atom.app'
==> Symlinking Binary 'apm' to '/usr/local/bin/apm'
