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
.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>
