OSX – homebrew

mac’s version of yum is called ‘brew’:
http://brew.sh/

Once installed here’s an analogy:

  • Yum = brew
  • Package = formula
  • Repo = tap
  • Yum repolist = brew tap

The ‘epel-release’ equivalent in mac is called cask

You can find out how to use cask here, see:
https://caskroom.github.io/

Here are some of my favourite formulas (aka packages):


$ brew list
ansible
packer
shellcheck
autoconf
doctl - digitalocean cli
sqlite
dos2unix
go		
pwgen		
terraform
bash-completion
jq
mtr - traceroute and ping in a single tool.
python		
tflint
bfg		
tree


$ brew cask list
atom                 
firefox              
iterm2              
java
