Or follow this StackOverflow answer

These brews can be installed via the raw GitHub URLs, or by cloning this repository locally with brew tap ethereum/ethereum. You can also install binary bottles directly with brew install <bottle_url>, see cpt-obvious for previous builds.

Troubleshooting

  • Use --verbose to get more info while installing.
  • Make sure to update XCode and the command line tools.
  • Run brew update and brew upgrade
  • Fix what the brew doctor says.
  • Reinstall dependencies: brew reinstall boost --c++11 --with-python
  • Make changes to /usr/local/Library/Taps/ethereum/homebrew-ethereum/ethereum.rb
  • Reinstall with brew reinstall ethereum.rb (send a pull request!)
  • Take a walk

Note that the ethereum keg exists in homebrew-core. It's not always up to date in homebrew-core and you might want to prioritise the version from this tap. To do this, you can pin this tap by running the following command:

brew tap-pin ethereum/ethereum

Patching

First cd /Library/Caches/Homebrew/ethereum--git/ and make your changes. Then git diff > shiny.patch, copy/paste the content of your patch under __END__ of ethereum.rb and replace the def patches block with:

def patches
  DATA
end

If you want to submit your change, save your patch in a gist, add your option 'shiny-option', 'Shiny description' and the URL to your gist in the patches block and submit a pull request. Make sure to send a pull request to Ethereum also!
