Overview
========

Recent versions of Homebrew have the ability to install brews from both
URLs and local file paths.

This repository contains UNOFFICIAL brews that have not been accepted into
the master branch.

These brews can be installed via the raw GitHub URLs, or by cloning this
repository locally and installing off the local disk. For more details see the "using" section below.

This REPLACES the "Homebrew Duplicates" branch.


Contents
========
duplicates

    bug-fixed versions. (Homebrew policy is to allow duplicates only in
    some specific cases.)

versions
    These brews provide mulitple versions of the same software package.
    (Homebrew policy is to maintain a single, stable version of a given
    package.)

binary
    These brews provide only binary installs.

non-free
    These brews provide non-free software.

other
    Other brews that have not been accepted into master.


Using
=====

There are two ways to install packages from this repository.

*Using Raw URLs*

First you need to get your hands on the raw URL. For example, `https://github.com/adamv/homebrew-alt/raw/master/non-free/princexml.rb` is the raw url for the princexml formula.

Then just pass that URL as a parameter to the `brew install` command, like so.

`brew install https://github.com/adamv/homebrew-alt/raw/master/non-free/princexml.rb`

*Cloning the Repository*

Clone the repository to somewhere that you'll remember. This example creates a `LibraryAlt` directory under `/usr/local`.

`git clone https://github.com/adamv/homebrew-alt.git /usr/local/LibraryAlt`

Then to install a formula pass the full path to the formula into the `brew install` command. Here's another example that installs princexml.

`brew install /usr/local/LibraryAlt/non-free/princexml.rb`
