check-for-homebrew-alternatives

Want to know which Homebrew casks can replace software already installed to your /Applications/ folder? Run this script to automatically check for Homebrew alternatives. Might not catch 100% of the Applications, but will give you a good start if you are looking to use Homebrew for more of the software you have installed.

Installation

Install with Homebrew:

brew install jakevossen5/taps/check-for-homebrew-alternatives

Usage

Just run check-for-homebrew-alternatives. It has to make an API request to every cask, so it will take a while. Be paitent.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
