Homebrew Cask

“To install, drag this icon…” no more!

Homebrew Cask extends Homebrew and brings its elegance, simplicity, and speed to the installation and management of GUI macOS applications such as Atom and Google Chrome.

We do this by providing a friendly CLI workflow for the administration of macOS applications distributed as binaries.

Let’s try it!

To start using Homebrew Cask, you just need Homebrew installed.

Installing and uninstalling Atom (animated gif)

Slower, now:

$ brew cask install atom
==> Satisfying dependencies
==> Downloading https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/download/v1.35.1/atom-mac.zip
==> Downloading from https://github-production-release-asset-2e65be.s3.amazonaws.co
######################################################################## 100.0%
==> Verifying SHA-256 checksum for Cask 'atom'.
==> Installing Cask atom
==> Moving App 'Atom.app' to '/Applications/Atom.app'.
==> Linking Binary 'apm' to '/usr/local/bin/apm'.
==> Linking Binary 'atom.sh' to '/usr/local/bin/atom'.
🍺  atom was successfully installed!

And there we have it. Atom installed with one quick command: no clicking, no dragging, no dropping.
