Homebrew má podporu Linuxu: balíčky nainstaluje bez roota - 8. Únor 2019 - 0:00
[6 minut čtení] Linuxbrew je port populárního macovského Homebrew. Oba projekty byly v nejnovější verzi spojeny, takže si alternativních balíčků můžeme užít i v Linuxu. Nebudeme k tomu potřebovat ani práva roota, protože se instaluje do domovského adresáře. Původním autorem projektu Homebrew je Max Howell, který balíčkovací systém pro macOS (tehdy ještě Mac OS X) v jazyce Ruby vytvořil v roce 2009. Přinášel do prostředí jablečných počítačů to, co známe z linuxového světa: pohodlný balíčkovací systém, který na jeden příkaz nainstaluje nový balíček včetně všech závislostí. Také proto projekt používá slogan Chybějící správce balíčků pro macOS.
