If you watch, please read: Anyone want to make a MacRuby version of this (w/ a Cocoa Interface?) @flangy suggested a ncurses version. homebrew is a pretty awesome command line client. I had my doubts at first, but I have come to realize that it is far and away the best package manager for OSX I have used. Not everyone is comfortable with the command line though :( I'm friendly. This doesn't involve money. Let's just make something that makes other people's lives easier. Msg me on github or follow me on twitter - @melgray homebrew-web ============ This started off as an attempt of creating a small website for homebrew for people to search for available packages. I kinda hacked together a really janky web front end for the package manager. Since homebrew is git based, it has the potential for being a really cool distributed package manager. Requirements: homebrew Rubygems (1.3.5+) Bundler TokyoCabinet TokyoCabinet Ruby Bindings (1.2.9) [http://gemcutter.org/gems/tokyocabinet] Sinatra Grit yajl-ruby If you have bundler, you only have to worry about having TokyoCabinet. To get started quickly, install homebrew and then: git clone git://github.com/melito/homebrew-web.git gem bundle rake bootstrap Running `rake bootstrap` will do the following: Get a list of all homebrew network members Add each of those remembers as a remote in your homebrew install Fetch (non-destructive) each of those remotes Index all of the remotes blobs & branches in a tokyocabinet bdb Once you've been 'bootstrapped' just run: ruby app.rb && open http://0.0.0.0:4567 Then just start typing a package name in the 'Search' box and a list of results should come up. The interface is very minimal and not nice atm. Design contributions / ideas / criticism is welcome. If you find this useful or like the idea of this, please contribute. Current rake options ===================================================================== ~/workspace/homebrew-web/ rake -T (in /Users/melgray/workspace/homebrew-web) rake bootstrap # Use this to setup everything up and get going rake db:build # Builds a TokyoCabinet BDB database to help search the git repo faster rake homebrew:location # Prints location where homebrew is installed rake network:ls # Prints out all members in the homebrew network rake network:remotes:add[user] # Add a user from the network as a remote (ex: rake network:remotes:add[mxcl]) rake network:remotes:add_all # Add all users from network as remotes and fetch (non-destructive) rake network:remotes:fetch # Fetches (non-destructive) from all your remotes. rake network:remotes:ls # List all remotes for your homebrew installation rake network:remotes:remove_all # Remove all remotes (except origin) from your homebrew install
