Brew Formula: How can I define external dependencies?


(K E N O) #1

I’m writing a brew formula for my own tap, having XQuartz and external sources (not available on brew) as dependencies. How can I include them in my formula?

You’ll have to either make or find existing Formulae for those.

Thanks! Can I require dependencies outside of the core repo?

Should be possible, but you might need to prefix them with the tap name if they’re in a different tap. (same as they would appear in brew search)
