Does brew cask upgrade automatically run brew cask cleanup or should I run cleanup every time after upgrade?


I don’t want to keep old versions. Wondering if this should be made more clear somewhere.

Brew upgrade --cleanup === brew update && brew upgrade && brew cleanup && brew cask upgrade && brew cask cleanup?

I actually set up a crontab task to run brew cask upgrade/cleanup on a weekly basis to keep things tidy.


Interesting. I just manually run all brew updates in an alias every couple days. I like seeing the output (and it’s a fun distraction, “Oooo node update!”). I realize I could review the cron output too.
