For those Linux users who feel neglected, you can install Homebrew with:

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Linuxbrew/install/master/install.sh)"


No thank you!

I've seen what that can do, and anyway, that fails miserably if Ruby is
not installed.

set -e
umask 022
if test -n "$HOMEBREW_FORCE_VENDOR_RUBY" || ! command -v ruby >/dev/null; then
	eval "`curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Linuxbrew/install/master/install-ruby`"
exec ruby -e "`curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Linuxbrew/install/master/install`" "$@"

(I've removed what it put there, cleaned and sterilised the brewery!)

Mac's are an odd case, as they are curated by Apple, who vehemently do
not want anyone "polluting" the system with unknown software.

However, as we all know, there are ways...

Best stick to the instructions on the chirp website I think.
