“To install, drag this icon…” no more!

Homebrew Cask extends Homebrew and brings its elegance, simplicity, and speed to OS X applications and large binaries alike.

It only takes 1 line in your shell to reach 2100 Casks maintained by 1000 contributors.

brew cask install google-chrome

Install with ease

Your software is just one command away from being ready and raring to go.

Forget all about babysitting the install process step by step, from website to cleanup.

ls /opt/homebrew-cask/Caskroom

Unix-savvy, OS X-friendly

Cask does one thing, does it well, and plays nice with others. Apps are kept in their Caskroom under /opt and symlinked to your ~/Applications folder.

Or wherever you like: Cask is fully configurable.

brew cask create my-cask


Creating new Casks is only a matter of minutes; updating them, of seconds!

And if you feel like improving Cask itself, dive into the codebase and you'll find yourself right at home: Cask is all git and Ruby, just like Homebrew.
