salt.modules.mac_brew_pkg

Homebrew for macOS

Important

If you feel that Salt should be using this module to manage packages on a minion, and it is using a different module (or gives an error similar to 'pkg.install' is not available), see here.

salt.modules.mac_brew_pkg.available_version(*names, **kwargs)

This function is an alias of latest_version.

Return the latest version of the named package available for upgrade or installation

Currently chooses stable versions, falling back to devel if that does not exist.

CLI Example:

salt '*' pkg.latest_version <package name>
salt '*' pkg.latest_version <package1> <package2> <package3>
salt.modules.mac_brew_pkg.info_installed(*names, **kwargs)

Return the information of the named package(s) installed on the system.

New in version 2016.3.1.

names
The names of the packages for which to return information.

CLI example:

salt '*' pkg.info_installed <package1>
salt '*' pkg.info_installed <package1> <package2> <package3> ...
salt.modules.mac_brew_pkg.install(name=None, pkgs=None, taps=None, options=None, **kwargs)

Install the passed package(s) with brew install

name

The name of the formula to be installed. Note that this parameter is ignored if "pkgs" is passed.

CLI Example:

salt '*' pkg.install <package name>
taps

Unofficial GitHub repos to use when updating and installing formulas.

CLI Example:

salt '*' pkg.install <package name> tap='<tap>'
salt '*' pkg.install zlib taps='homebrew/dupes'
salt '*' pkg.install php54 taps='["josegonzalez/php", "homebrew/dupes"]'
options

Options to pass to brew. Only applies to initial install. Due to how brew works, modifying chosen options requires a full uninstall followed by a fresh install. Note that if "pkgs" is used, all options will be passed to all packages. Unrecognized options for a package will be silently ignored by brew.

CLI Example:

salt '*' pkg.install <package name> tap='<tap>'
salt '*' pkg.install php54 taps='["josegonzalez/php", "homebrew/dupes"]' options='["--with-fpm"]'
