Instructions for a supported install of Homebrew are on the homepage.
I am mostly windows developer and had to step into iDevelopmentWorld. Went to apple to get XCode, downloaded it, however file extension is.dmg. Windows does not recognize it as executable and throws following dialog. I am guessing that ether. I need some additional software to open it (like mounting an image). First things first: Xcode is an IDE (integrated development environment) by Apple, that allows you to develop for the Apple ecosystem. That means you can create applications for macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS. Xcode is a sole macOS application, so that it is not possible to install Xcode on a Windows system. Follow the below steps so as to install Xcode on Windows 10, 8, or 8.1 and Windows 7 desktop or laptop for iOS SDK. Step 1: Initially, download and install VMware or VirtualBox on your Windows computer from the above link. Step 2: Now, you need to download and install OSX Mavericks ISO as a virtual machine. Step By Step Procedure To Run Xcode On Windows Without Virtualization. After downloading the VMWare, go to installed application. Right click on the application and select ‘run as administrator’. Open the application- click on ‘file’ and proceed next. Select an installation disc and choose ‘I will install the operating system later’.
This script installs Homebrew to its preferred prefix (
/usr/localfor macOS Intel,
/opt/homebrew for Apple Silicon and
/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew for Linux) so thatyou don’t need sudo when you
brew install. It is a careful script; it can be run even if you have stuffinstalled in the preferred prefix already. It tells you exactly what it will do beforeit does it too. You have to confirm everything it will do before it starts.
xcode-select --install,developer.apple.com/downloads orXcode3
You can set
HOMEBREW_CORE_GIT_REMOTE in your shell environment to use geolocalized Git mirrors to speed up Homebrew’s installation with this script and, after installation,
The default Git remote will be used if the corresponding environment variable is unset.
Check out the Homebrew on Linux installation documentation.
Just extract (or
git clone) Homebrew wherever you want. Just avoid:
/tmpsubdirectories because Homebrew gets upset.
/opt/localbecause build scripts get confused when Homebrew is there instead of Fink or MacPorts, respectively.
However do yourself a favour and use the installer to install to the default prefix. Some things maynot build when installed elsewhere. One of the reasons Homebrew justworks relative to the competition is because we recommend installinghere. Pick another prefix at your peril!
Create a Homebrew installation wherever you extract the tarball. Whichever
brew command is called is where the packages will be installed. You can use this as you see fit, e.g. a system set of libs in the default prefix and tweaked formulae for development in
Uninstallation is documented in the FAQ.
1 For 32-bit or PPC support seeTigerbrew.
2 10.14 or higher is recommended. 10.9–10.13 aresupported on a best-effort basis. For 10.4-10.6 seeTigerbrew.
3 Most formulae require a compiler. A handfulrequire a full Xcode installation. You can install Xcode, the CLT, or both;Homebrew supports all three configurations. Downloading Xcode may require anApple Developer account on older versions of Mac OS X. Sign up for freehere.
4 The one-liner installation method found onbrew.sh requires the Bourne-again shell, i.e. bash.Notably, zsh, fish, tcsh and csh will not work.
