This script installs Homebrew to its preferred prefix (
/usr/localfor macOS Intel,
/opt/homebrew for Apple Silicon) so thatyou don’t need sudo when you
brew install. It is a careful script; it can be run even if you have stuffinstalled in
/usr/local already. It tells you exactly what it will do beforeit does it too. You have to confirm everything it will do before it starts.
- A 64-bit Intel CPU or Apple Silicon CPU 1
- macOS Mojave (10.14) (or higher) 2
- Command Line Tools (CLT) for Xcode:
xcode-select --install,developer.apple.com/downloads orXcode3
- A Bourne-compatible shell for installation (e.g.
Git Remote Mirroring
You can set
HOMEBREW_CORE_GIT_REMOTE in your shell environment to use geolocalized Git mirrors to speed up Homebrew’s installation with this script and, after installation,
The default Git remote will be used if the corresponding environment variable is unset.
Linux or Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux
Check out the Homebrew on Linux installation documentation.
Just extract (or
git clone) Homebrew wherever you want. Just avoid:
- Directories with names that contain spaces. Homebrew itself can handle spaces, but many build scripts cannot.
/tmpsubdirectories because Homebrew gets upset.
/opt/localbecause build scripts get confused when Homebrew is there instead of Fink or MacPorts, respectively.
However do yourself a favour and install to
/usr/local on macOS Intel,
/opt/homebrew on macOS ARM,and
/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew on Linux. Some things maynot build when installed elsewhere. One of the reasons Homebrew justworks relative to the competition is because we recommend installinghere. Pick another prefix at your peril!
Create a Homebrew installation wherever you extract the tarball. Whichever
brew command is called is where the packages will be installed. You can use this as you see fit, e.g. a system set of libs in
/usr/local and tweaked formulae for development in
Uninstallation is documented in the FAQ.

Development is picking pace, and Node.js is shipping out a new version frequently. It is nice to have the latest version at hand in your development environment to test out new features.
There are a few ways to install Node.js. One of the obvious ones is to download the installer from nodejs.org. However, you might not want to be downloading a new installer every time there's a new version out.
Here are few alternative ways to update to the latest version of Node.js on a Mac.
