Rebuilding your Mac with Homebrew and Cask

On a recent episode of Talking Drupal, my Drupal podcast, co-host John Picozzi (@johnpicozzi) mentioned he is using Homebrew and Cask to setup his new MacBook Pro. Homebrew is a package manager for macOS and Cask extends Homebrew by allowing applications to be installed from the command line. For example, the command below will install Chrome.

brew cask install google-chrome

Could it be that easy? Yes.
