This repository contains unofficial formulae for Homebrew.
(This replaces the
Homebrew Duplicates branch that used to live under adamv's
main Homebrew fork.)
To install homebrew-alt formulae, use one of the following:
brew install [raw GitHub URL]
brew install [full path to formula from your local homebrew-alt clone]
For more details, see below: "Installing homebrew-alt Formulae".
These brews duplicate OS X functionality, though may provide newer or bug-fixed versions.
(Homebrew policy discourages duplicates, except in some specific cases.)
These formulae provide mulitple versions of the same software package.
(Homebrew policy is to maintain a single, stable version of a given package.)
These formulae provide binary-only installations.
These formulae provide non-free software.
Other formulae that haven't been accepted into master.
