I'm writing a quick Homebrew formula for my own private purposes (it's unlikely to be shared). I'd like to install it , but would prefer not to maintain my own local fork of Homebrew, but instead outside
/usr/local/Library/Formula (it happens to be within an existing private git repository I have, but I think that's incidental to the question).
brew install ./my-formula.rb
brew install file:///Users/myusername/mygitrepository/my-formula.rb.
Neither seems to work. Instead I see:
Error: No available formula for my-formula
==> Searching formulae...
==> Searching taps...
How can I install this formula?
Note: Installing the formula using git repository syntax is unlikely to be what I need - I'm looking to install the formula during its development, in other words before I commit to my git repo.
I am using Homebrew 0.9.5.
