Overview

This class is abstract.

A formula provides instructions and metadata for Homebrew to install a piece of software. Every Homebrew formula is a Formula. All subclasses of Formula (and all Ruby classes) have to be named UpperCase and not-use-dashes. A formula specified in this-formula.rb should have a class named ThisFormula. Homebrew does enforce that the name of the file and the class correspond. Make sure you check with brew search that the name is free!

Class Attribute Details

.bottle(*args, &block) ⇒ Object

Adds a bottle SoftwareSpec. This provides a pre-built binary package built by the Homebrew maintainers for you. It will be installed automatically if there is a binary package for your platform and you haven’t passed or previously used any options on this formula.

If you maintain your own repository, you can add your own bottle links. You can ignore this block entirely if submitting to Homebrew/homebrew-core. It’ll be handled for you by the Brew Test Bot.

bottle do
  root_url "https://example.com" # Optional root to calculate bottle URLs
  prefix "/opt/homebrew" # Optional HOMEBREW_PREFIX in which the bottles were built.
  cellar "/opt/homebrew/Cellar" # Optional HOMEBREW_CELLAR in which the bottles were built.
  rebuild 1 # Making the old bottle outdated without bumping the version/revision of the formula.

end

Only formulae where the upstream URL breaks or moves frequently, require compiling or have a reasonable amount of patches/resources should be bottled. Formulae which do not meet the above requirements should not be bottled.

Formulae which should not be bottled and can be installed without any compile required should be tagged with:

bottle :unneeded

Otherwise formulae which do not meet the above requirements and should not be bottled should be tagged with:

bottle :disable, "reasons"

.deprecated_option(hash) ⇒ Object

Deprecated options are used to rename options and migrate users who used them to newer ones. They are mostly used for migrating non-with options (e.g. enable-debug) to with options (e.g. with-debug).

deprecated_option "enable-debug" => "with-debug"

.desc=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

A one-line description of the software. Used by users to get an overview of the software and Homebrew maintainers. Shows when running brew info.

desc "Example formula"

# File 'brew/Library/Homebrew/formula.rb', line 2110

attr_rw :desc

.devel(&block) ⇒ Object

Adds a devel SoftwareSpec. This can be installed by passing the --devel option to allow installing non-stable (e.g. beta) versions of software.

devel do
  url "https://example.com/archive-2.0-beta.tar.gz"
  sha256 "2a2ba417eebaadcb4418ee7b12fe2998f26d6e6f7fda7983412ff66a741ab6f7"

  @devel ||= SoftwareSpec.new
  return @devel unless block_given?

  @devel.instance_eval(&block)
end

.head(val = nil, specs = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

Adds a head SoftwareSpec. This can be installed by passing the --HEAD option to allow installing software directly from a branch of a version-control repository. If called as a method this provides just the url for the SoftwareSpec. If a block is provided you can also add depends_on and Patches just to the head SoftwareSpec. The download strategies (e.g. :using =>) are the same as for url. master is the default branch and doesn’t need stating with a :branch parameter.

head "https://we.prefer.https.over.git.example.com/.git"
head "https://example.com/.git", :branch => "name_of_branch", :revision => "abc123"

or (if autodetect fails):

head "https://hg.is.awesome.but.git.has.won.example.com/", :using => :hg

  end
end

.homepage=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

The homepage for the software. Used by users to get more information about the software and Homebrew maintainers as a point of contact for e.g. submitting patches. Can be opened with running brew home.

homepage "https://www.example.com"


2119
# File 'brew/Library/Homebrew/formula.rb', line 2119

attr_rw :homepage

.mirror(val) ⇒ Object

Additional URLs for the stable version of the formula. These are only used if the url fails to download. It’s optional and there can be more than one. Generally we add them when the main url is unreliable. If url is really unreliable then we may swap the mirror and url.

mirror "https://in.case.the.host.is.down.example.com"
mirror "https://in.case.the.mirror.is.down.example.com

def mirror(val)
  stable.mirror(val)
end

.option(name, description = "") ⇒ Object

Options can be used as arguments to brew install. To switch features on/off: "with-something" or "with-otherthing". To use other software: "with-other-software" or "without-foo" Note that for depends_on that are :optional or :recommended, options are generated automatically.

There are also some special options:

  • :universal: build a universal binary/library (e.g. on newer Intel Macs this means a combined x86_64/x86 binary/library).
option "with-spam", "The description goes here without a dot at the end"
option "with-qt", "Text here overwrites the autogenerated one from 'depends_on "qt" => :optional'"
option :universal

def option(name, description = "")
  specs.each { |spec| spec.option(name, description) }
end

.revision=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

Used for creating new Homebrew versions of software without new upstream versions. For example, if we bump the major version of a library this Formula depends_on then we may need to update the revision of this Formula to install a new version linked against the new library version. 0 if unset.

revision 1


2142
# File 'brew/Library/Homebrew/formula.rb', line 2142

attr_rw :revision

.sha256=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

To verify the cached download’s integrity and security we verify the SHA-256 hash matches which we’ve declared in the Formula. To quickly fill this value you can leave it blank and run brew fetch --force and it’ll tell you the currently valid value.

sha256 "2a2ba417eebaadcb4418ee7b12fe2998f26d6e6f7fda7983412ff66a741ab6f7"

Checksum::TYPES.each do |type|
  define_method(type) { |val| stable.send(type, val) }
end

.stable(&block) ⇒ Object

Allows adding depends_on and Patches just to the stable SoftwareSpec. This is required instead of using a conditional. It is preferrable to also pull the url and sha256 into the block if one is added.

stable do
  url "https://example.com/foo-1.0.tar.gz"
  sha256 "2a2ba417eebaadcb4418ee7b12fe2998f26d6e6f7fda7983412ff66a741ab6f7"

  @stable.instance_eval(&block)
end

.url(val, specs = {}) ⇒ Object

The URL used to download the source for the stable version of the formula. We prefer https for security and proxy reasons. If not inferrable, specify the download strategy with :using => ...

  • :git, :hg, :svn, :bzr, :fossil, :cvs,
  • :curl (normal file download. Will also extract.)
  • :nounzip (without extracting)
  • :post (download via an HTTP POST)
  • :s3 (download from S3 using signed request)
url "https://packed.sources.and.we.prefer.https.example.com/archive-1.2.3.tar.bz2"
url "https://some.dont.provide.archives.example.com",
    :using => :git,
    :tag => "1.2.3",

# File 'brew/Library/Homebrew/formula.rb', line 2178

def url(val, specs = {})
  stable.url(val, specs)
end

.version(val = nil) ⇒ Object

The version string for the stable version of the formula. The version is autodetected from the URL and/or tag so only needs to be declared if it cannot be autodetected correctly.

version "1.2-final"

2190
# File 'brew/Library/Homebrew/formula.rb', line 2188

def version(val = nil)
  stable.version(val)
end

.version_scheme=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

Used for creating new Homebrew version schemes. For example, if we want to change version scheme from one to another, then we may need to update version_scheme of this Formula to be able to use new version scheme. e.g. to move from 20151020 scheme to 1.0.0 we need to increment version_scheme. Without this, the prior scheme will always equate to a higher version. 0 if unset.

version_scheme 1

end

.depends_on(dep) ⇒ Object

The dependencies for this formula. Use strings for the names of other formulae. Homebrew provides some :special dependencies for stuff that requires certain extra handling (often changing some ENV vars or deciding if to use the system provided version or not.)

# `:build` means this dep is only needed during build.
depends_on "cmake" => :build
depends_on "homebrew/dupes/tcl-tk" => :optional
# `:recommended` dependencies are built by default.
# But a `--without-...` option is generated to opt-out.
depends_on "readline" => :recommended
# `:optional` dependencies are NOT built by default.
# But a `--with-...` options is generated.
depends_on "glib" => :optional
# If you need to specify that another formula has to be built with/out
# certain options (note, no `--` needed before the option):
depends_on "zeromq" => "with-pgm"
depends_on "qt" => ["with-qtdbus", "developer"] # Multiple options.
# Optional and enforce that boost is built with `--with-c++11`.
depends_on "boost" => [:optional, "with-c++11"]
# If a dependency is only needed in certain cases:
depends_on "sqlite" if MacOS.version == :mavericks
depends_on :xcode # If the formula really needs full Xcode.
depends_on :macos => :mojave # Needs at least macOS Mojave (10.14).
depends_on :x11 => :optional # X11/XQuartz components.
depends_on :osxfuse # Permits the use of the upstream signed binary or our source package.
depends_on :tuntap # Does the same thing as above. This is vital for Yosemite and above.
# It is possible to only depend on something if
# `build.with?` or `build.without? "another_formula"`:
depends_on "postgresql" if build.without? "sqlite"
# Python 3.x if the `--with-python` is given to `brew install example`
depends_on "python3" => :optional
# Python 2.7:
depends_on "python@2"

def depends_on(dep)

end

.fails_with(compiler, &block) ⇒ Object

Marks the Formula as failing with a particular compiler so it will fall back to others. For Apple compilers, this should be in the format:

fails_with :clang do
  build 600
  cause "multiple configure and compile errors"
end

The block may be omitted, and if present the build may be omitted; if so, then the compiler will be blacklisted for all versions.

major_version should be the major release number only, for instance ‘7’ for the GCC 7 series (7.0, 7.1, etc.). If version or the block is omitted, then the compiler will be blacklisted for all compilers in that series.

For example, if a bug is only triggered on GCC 7.1 but is not encountered on 7.2:

fails_with :gcc => '7' do
  version '7.1'
end

end

.keg_only(reason, explanation = "") ⇒ Object

Software that will not be symlinked into the brew --prefix will only live in its Cellar. Other formulae can depend on it and then brew will add the necessary includes and libs (etc.) during the brewing of that other formula. But generally, keg-only formulae are not in your PATH and not seen by compilers if you build your own software outside of Homebrew. This way, we don’t shadow software provided by macOS.

keg_only :provided_by_macos
keg_only "because I want it so"

.patch(strip = :p1, src = nil, &block) ⇒ Object

External patches can be declared using resource-style blocks.

patch do
  url "https://example.com/example_patch.diff"
  sha256 "c6bc3f48ce8e797854c4b865f6a8ff969867bbcaebd648ae6fd825683e59fef2"
end

A strip level of -p1 is assumed. It can be overridden using a symbol argument:

patch :p0 do
  url "https://example.com/example_patch.diff"
  sha256 "c6bc3f48ce8e797854c4b865f6a8ff969867bbcaebd648ae6fd825683e59fef2"
end

Patches can be declared in stable, devel, and head blocks. This form is preferred over using conditionals.

stable do
  patch do
    url "https://example.com/example_patch.diff"
    sha256 "c6bc3f48ce8e797854c4b865f6a8ff969867bbcaebd648ae6fd825683e59fef2"
  end
end

Embedded (__END__) patches are declared like so:

patch :DATA
patch :p0, :DATA

Patches can also be embedded by passing a string. This makes it possible to provide multiple embedded patches while making only some of them conditional.

patch :p0, "..."

end

.plist_options(options) ⇒ Object

Defines launchd plist handling.

Does your plist need to be loaded at startup?

plist_options :startup => true

Or only when necessary or desired by the user?

plist_options :manual => "foo"

Or perhaps you’d like to give the user a choice? Ooh fancy.

plist_options :startup => true, :manual => "foo start"

  @plist_manual = options[:manual]
end

.pour_bottle?(&block) ⇒ Boolean

Defines whether the Formula’s bottle can be used on the given Homebrew installation.

For example, if the bottle requires the Xcode CLT to be installed a Formula would declare:

pour_bottle? do
  reason "The bottle needs the Xcode CLT to be installed."
  satisfy { MacOS::CLT.installed? }
end

If satisfy returns false then a bottle will not be used and instead the Formula will be built from source and reason will be printed.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

.resource(name, klass = Resource, &block) ⇒ Object

Additional downloads can be defined as resources and accessed in the install method. Resources can also be defined inside a stable, devel or head block. This mechanism replaces ad-hoc “subformula” classes.

resource "additional_files" do
  url "https://example.com/additional-stuff.tar.gz"
  sha256 "c6bc3f48ce8e797854c4b865f6a8ff969867bbcaebd648ae6fd825683e59fef2"

  # Specifying :all is deprecated and will become an error
  skip_clean_paths.merge(paths)
end

.test(&block) ⇒ Boolean

A test is required for new formulae and makes us happy. The block will create, run in and delete a temporary directory.

We are fine if the executable does not error out, so we know linking and building the software was OK.

system bin/"foobar", "--version"
(testpath/"test.file").write <<~EOS

#inreplace(paths, before = nil, after = nil) ⇒ Object

Actually implemented in Utils::Inreplace.inreplace. Sometimes we have to change a bit before we install. Mostly we prefer a patch but if you need the prefix of this formula in the patch you have to resort to inreplace, because in the patch you don’t have access to any var defined by the formula. Only HOMEBREW_PREFIX is available in the embedded patch.

inreplace supports regular expressions:

inreplace "somefile.cfg", /look[for]what?/, "replace by #{bin}/tool"


# File 'brew/Library/Homebrew/formula.rb', line 58

#installObject

This method is overridden in Formula subclasses to provide the installation instructions. The sources (from url) are downloaded, hash-checked and Homebrew changes into a temporary directory where the archive was unpacked or repository cloned.

#pour_bottle?Boolean

Indicates that this formula supports bottles. (Not necessarily that one should be used in the current installation run.) Can be overridden to selectively disable bottles from formulae. Defaults to true so overridden version does not have to check if bottles are supported. Replaced by pour_bottle’s satisfy method if it is specified.

Standard parameters for CMake builds. Setting CMAKE_FIND_FRAMEWORK to “LAST” tells CMake to search for our libraries before trying to utilize Frameworks, many of which will be from 3rd party installs. Note: there isn’t a std_autotools variant because autotools is a lot less consistent and the standard parameters are more memorable.

#system(cmd, *args) ⇒ Object

To call out to the system, we use the system method and we prefer you give the args separately as in the line below, otherwise a subshell has to be opened first.

system "./bootstrap.sh", "--arg1", "--prefix=#{prefix}"

For CMake we have some necessary defaults in #std_cmake_args:

system "cmake", ".", *std_cmake_args

If the arguments given to configure (or make or cmake) are depending on options defined above, we usually make a list first and then use the args << if <condition> to append to:

args = ["--with-option1", "--with-option2"]

# Most software still uses `configure` and `make`.
# Check with `./configure --help` what our options are.
system "./configure", "--disable-debug", "--disable-dependency-tracking",
                      "--disable-silent-rules", "--prefix=#{prefix}",
                      *args # our custom arg list (needs `*` to unpack)

# If there is a "make", "install" available, please use it!
system "make", "install"
