Homebrew is a
free and open-source (FOSS)
package management system that is available for
systems. Homebrew makes extensive use of
expand the support of several packages through user contributions. The
software was written by Max Howell in 2009; as of July 2016 there was a
team of twelve developers maintaining the software.
You can install it by opening a
Terminal window and issuing the command
"$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)". I recommend putting the
at the beginning of the command, so you won't be prompted so many times to
provide the password for your account during the installation, i.e.,
sudo /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)".
