It’s as easy as
brew install vagrant
Ha! Nice try there, buddy:
Error: No available formula with the name "vagrant" ==> Searching for similarly named formulae... Error: No similarly named formulae found. ==> Searching taps... These formulae were found in taps: homebrew/completions/vagrant-completion Caskroom/cask/vagrant-manager Caskroom/cask/vagrant-bar Caskroom/cask/vagrant To install one of them, run (for example): brew install homebrew/completions/vagrant-completion
According to this discussion, it’s not allowed by homebrew but the homebrew-cask project enables users to install vagrant. (So *that’s* why I couldn’t get Chrome, Dropbox, 1Password, VLC and other apps installed view homebrew – there’s some rule or constraint in homebrew that only enables non-GUI apps.)
So let’s install the Cask tools – this article makes me feel silly even – you just have to know to use the “cask” keyword, as in:
brew cask install vagrant
Thus do I get vagrant v1.9.1 in one (slightly unexpected) command line. (And don’t forget virtualbox and vagrant-manager!)
Which is super-cool, because many package managers end up with non-current builds of the tools in their catalogs.
And as a bonus, they mention a bunch of quicklook plugins that I never even thought to go looking for – markdown, syntax-highlighted code, JSON, CSV and more!
