Happy Sunday! I’ve switched to pkgsrc on most of my Macs, but I still need Homebrew on one machine. The one advantage of Homebrew is you can use Cask to install graphical applications.

The thing to remember is, unlike pkg or apt-get, you must specify the cask command for these applications:

$ brew install keepassxc
==> Error: No available formula with the name "keepassxc" 
==> Found a cask named "keepassxc" instead. Try
==>    brew cask install keepassxc

Except for search, which they depracated and removed:

$ brew cask search See also "man brew-cask"
==> Error: Unknown Cask command: search

I understand the technical reasons why, but it’s not great for usability.
