I had to install a laptop from scratch a month ago.
I was surprised to find out just how big the list is.

This is my cannot-live-without Brewfile

cask "iterm2"
cask "1password"
cask "evernote"
cask "spectacle"
cask "vagrant"
cask "virtualbox"
cask "slack"
cask "dropbox"
cask "anki"

brew "vim"
brew "jq"
brew "tmux"
brew "fzf"
brew "terraform"
brew "packer"
brew "zsh"
brew "bash"
brew "z"
brew "node"
brew "reattach-to-user-namespace"
brew "ag"
brew "httpie"
brew "mosh"
brew "shellcheck"
brew "git-lfs"
brew "tree"
brew "pstree"
brew "coreutils"
brew "awscli"
brew "aws-shell"

I didn't look at such file of mine, but I'm sure it is also big. Do you version control this file at all ?

Since that time I do.

Btw, It's not like i grabbed my brewfile just to throw a big list. I ran into needing all of those in probably the first day of using the computer.

Yeah, I totally understand the necessity. There is a lot of things I use on an almost daily basis and my flow is broken if I don't have them.
