betterbrew-zsh-plugin - better command aliases for the macOS Homebrew Package Manager in zsh

betterbrew-zsh-plugin contains short aliases for all homebrew commands.

This is for my personal use and is always a work in progress. Feel free to hang with it.


Without typing full homebrew commands in console, like:

$ brew install zsh --build-from-source

there is more convenient alias:

$ bifs zsh

Installation on oh-my-zsh

  1. Go to oh-my-zsh plugins directory:

    $ cd ~/.oh-my-zsh/plugins
  2. Clone the repository into a new directory betterbrew :

    git clone betterbrew
  3. Enable betterbrew plugin by adding to your .zshrc configuration file:

  4. Restart your shell.
