Homebrew is a package manager for macOS, but it can also be used on Linux distributions.
Setup on macOS
Homebrew is required for the macOS setup to work and it will be installed automatically by the set up script.
The macOS playbooks are using Homebrew where possible to install packages on your environment.
Setup on Linux
Homebrew is installed to
/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew using sudo. If you have
installed Linuxbrew in your home directory at
~/.linuxbrew, the role will skip
installing the shared version.
Run setup script with the
linuxbrew tag to install Homebrew on Linux:
./setup -t linuxbrew
If you're having trouble getting Homebrew working, see the official Homebrew installation instructions for help.
