Attributes

  • node['homebrew']['owner'] - The user that will own the Homebrew installation and packages. Setting this will override the default behavior which is to use the non-privileged user that has invoked the Chef run (or the SUDO_USER if invoked with sudo). The default is nil.
  • node['homebrew']['auto-update'] - Whether the default recipe should automatically update Homebrew each run or not. The default is true to maintain compatibility. Set to false or nil to disable. Note that disabling this feature may cause formula to not work.
  • node['homebrew']['formulas'] - An Array of formula that should be installed using Homebrew by default, used only in the homebrew::install_formulas recipe.

    • To install the most recent version, include just the recipe name: - simple_formula
    • To install a specific version, specify both its name and version:

      - name: special-version-formula
        version: 1.2.3
      
    • To install the HEAD of a formula, specify both its name and head: true:

      - name: head-tracking-formula
        head: true
      
    • To provide other options, specify both its name and options

      - name: formula-with-options
        options: --with-option-1 --with-other-option
      
  • node['homebrew']['casks'] - An Array of casks that should be installed using brew cask by default, used only in the homebrew::install_casks recipe.

  • node['homebrew']['taps'] - An Array of taps that should be installed using brew tap by default, used only in the homebrew::install_taps recipe.

Resources (provider)

homebrew_tap

LWRP for brew tap, a Homebrew command used to add additional formula repositories. From the brew man page:

tap [tap]
       Tap a new formula repository from GitHub, or list existing taps.

       tap is of the form user/repo, e.g. brew tap homebrew/dupes.

Default action is :tap which enables the repository. Use :untap to disable a tapped repository.

Examples

homebrew_tap 'homebrew/dupes'

homebrew_tap 'homebrew/dupes' do
  action :untap
end

homebrew_cask

LWRP for brew cask, a Homebrew-style CLI workflow for the administration of Mac applications distributed as binaries. It's implemented as a homebrew "external command" called cask.

homebrew-cask on GitHub

Prerequisites

You must have the homebrew-cask repository tapped.

homebrew_tap 'caskroom/cask'

And then install the homebrew cask package before using this LWRP.

package "brew-cask" do
  action :install
  end

You can include the homebrew::cask recipe to do this.

Examples

homebrew_cask "google-chrome"

homebrew_cask "google-chrome" do
  action :uncask
end

Default action is :cask which installs the Application binary . Use :uncask to uninstall a an Application.

Usage

We strongly recommend that you put "recipe[homebrew]" in your node's run list, to ensure that it is available on the system and that Homebrew itself gets installed. Putting an explicit dependency in the metadata will cause the cookbook to be downloaded and the library loaded, thus resulting in changing the package provider on Mac OS X, so if you have systems you want to use the default (Mac Ports), they would be changed to Homebrew.

The default recipe also ensures that Homebrew is installed and up to date if the auto update attribute (above) is true (default).
