I was wondering why the libpq formula is key-only… It says that it conflicts with postgresql.
The libpq formula installs some executables, like
pg_loader, createdb, dropdb, psql all nice command line tools for anyone using portgres.
The postgres formula also installs those executables.
We’ve been using postgres with docker, so we don’t need the whole postgres server and libpq is perfect for that. We can compile
pg gem and use the cli tools.
Can we just define
conflict_with instead of
conflicts_with "postgresql", :because => "Installs same cli tools"
