Cask

I did a clean installation of my laptop this weekend, rather than go through the list of apps I had installed and do a manual installation of each one using the “Download and drag” method I decided to use Cask. Cask is a Homebrew package which automates to the download and install part. Here is pretty much my entire installation process ….

ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"<br>brew doctor<br>brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask<br>brew cask install google-chrome<br>brew cask install dropbox<br>brew cask install google-drive<br>brew cask install sublime-text<br>brew cask install github<br>brew cask install spotify<br>brew cask install libreoffice<br>brew cask install virtualbox<br>brew cask install skype

=The only downside is that it installs the packages into the users Application directory which set my OCD off, it was quickly remedied though by simply moving the link once I had installed everything I needed.
