You can install fonts with homebrew?!
Nobody told me this until yesterday...
Yesterday I learned (is YIL a thing?) that you don’t have to manually download a font’s, find the
.ttf files, and install them via FontBook LIKE AN ANIMAL!
Instead, you can rely on Homebrew’s official cask of fonts by running this once:
brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
After that, installing your favorite font (or testing out a new one) is as easy as Sunday morning:
brew cask install font-fira-code
If you want to browse all of the fonts available in the cask:
brew search font-
And if you’re searching for a specific font, but you can’t quite remember the name,
brew search font- | grep fira
If you’re a long time homebrew fan-person, you probably already knew this, But if you don’t know, now you know. ✊
Oh, and if for some strange reason you want to see the actual moment that I learned this fact. Watch the tail end of our JS Party live recording from yesterday. 📹
