Mac OS X Setup Guide

Homebrew Cask

Let's see if we can get the elegance, simplicity, and speed of Homebrew for the installation and management of GUI Mac applications such as Google Chrome and Adium.

Install

As of December 2015, cask comes installed with Homebrew directly.

$ brew cask install google-chrome

It is really simple to check if the app is supported by cask by going to the search page on caskroom.io

Quick look plugins

Some plugins to enable different files to work with Mac Quicklook. Includes features like syntax highlighting, markdown rendering, preview of jsons, patch files, csv, zip files etc.
