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.

Let’s try it!

To start using Homebrew-Cask, you just need Homebrew installed.

Installing Atom (animated gif)

Slower, now:

$ brew cask install atom
==> Satisfying dependencies
complete
==> Downloading https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/download/v1.8.0/atom-mac.zip
######################################################################## 100.0%
==> Verifying checksum for Cask atom
==> Moving App 'Atom.app' to '/Applications/Atom.app'
==> Symlinking Binary 'apm' to '/usr/local/bin/apm'
==> Symlinking Binary 'atom.sh' to '/usr/local/bin/atom'
🍺  atom was successfully installed!

And there we have it. Atom installed with one quick command: no clicking, no dragging, no dropping.
