Great article, but if you have homebrew installed there is much simpler way I think -> github.com/bobthecow/git-flow-comp...

 

Definitely do so if you're using homebrew. I'm not a fan of homebrew. I typically just install from source given the Unix core of macOS.

 

Do you mind if I ask what you see as faults in homebrew?
It has served me well. so I'm just wondering

No fault. Homebrew is a great package manager and definitely makes it easy to install things on macOS. However, since macOS runs atop a Unix core, I've rarely found the need to use Homebrew. Often you can make and install directly from source. Admittedly a bit low-level, but I guess I'm used to it from my days as a C dev.

I know that home-brew does alter some permissions and comfortable enough with that. I was just curious. There may have been something about it that I didn't know.

I started as teenager at a time when you needed assembly language to make 8 bit microprocessors work well and have spend most of my working life with the C family. I get the low level thing..
