Install Homebrew on Yosemite

Homebrew installs the stuff you need that Apple didnโ€™t put itย into their own directory and then symlinks their files into /usr/local.

Here is a simple how-to install brew on Yosemite:

  • Download and install Xcode 6.1
  • Open your Terminal
  • Download the latest Java SE JDK from Oracle
  • Run the following commands:
    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL httpss://"
    brew doctorย 

At this point, brew is installed and ready to use. To install some of the tools/packages it has available, a command “brew install” will be needed.
For example:

brew install nmap

Enjoy your new little bit of freedom.
