Automate Homebrew Updates with Homebrew Autoupdate for macOS
Summary of my bookmarked Github repositories from Aug 27th, 2021
Homebrew Autoupdate is a convenient script that automatically updates Homebrew, the package manager for macOS. It runs in the background, executing "brew update" every 24 hours by default. Optional flags enable automatic upgrades and cleanup. Notifications are supported on macOS Big Sur using a codesigned AppleScript applet. The installation process involves tapping homebrew/autoupdate. The script provides commands to start, stop, delete, and check the status of autoupdating. Logs can be found in the designated directory. This script complements Homebrew's built-in autoupdate mechanism and ensures regular updates. It was created by DomT4 and is licensed under the BSD 2 Clause (NetBSD).
