Homebrew-Cask extends Homebrew and allows you to install large binary files via a command-line tool. You can for example install applications like Google Chrome, Dropbox, VLC and Spectacle. No more downloading .dmg files and dragging them to your Applications folder!


You need Homebrew on your system to use Cask, and you make Cask available by adding it as a tap:

$ brew tap caskroom/cask

To see if an app is available on Cask you can search on the official Cask website. You can also search in your terminal:

$ brew cask search <package>
