Developing forumla for YubiHSM 2 SDK


(Benno Rice) #1

Hi!

I’m developing a formula for Yubico’s YubiHSM 2 SDK:

https://developers.yubico.com/YubiHSM2/

I had a couple of questions, namely:

  • It’s distributed as pre-compiled libraries/binaries, although there are no graphical elements and no installer. Does this make it a better fit for a cask?
  • It depends on libcrypto but it bundles its own. I can use install_name_tool to retarget it to the installed OpenSSL but will this mean I’ll need to reinstall whenever OpenSSL updates?

Many thanks!

From https://docs.brew.sh/Acceptable-Formulae " Binary-only formulae should go to homebrew/cask."

This is probably a question better asked to the yubico people but if it’s precompiled it generally wouldn’t need reinstalling.
