Requirements

  • Homebrew (Can be installed by the install script of brew-file, too).
  • Python 2.7.7 or later, or Python 3.
  • Requests module (optional)

Current macOS High Sierra’s python (/usr/bin/python) is 2.7.10, so that there is no need to do on python.

It calls /usr/bin/env python, i.e., python command in your PATH.

If you set your PYTHONPATH for python3 and python command is linked to python2, you may need to execute brew-file directly:

$ python3 /usr/local/bin/brew-file

instead of brew file.

Requests module of python is needed to create Brewfile repository with setup_repo. If you make the repository by yourself, it is not needed.

To install:

$ easy_install pip # # in case you've not installed pip
$ pip install requests
