Is it possible to get a complete list of all homebrew package names that are able to install using brew install PACKAGE_NAME? (not just a count of all packages)

There is a complete list of available Homebrew packages here, but I would like a script if available

  • @Nimesh Neema I don't think that this question is a duplicate, because I don't just want a complete count, I want a list of all the packages – user289613 Dec 27 '18 at 9:46

    The linked question contains the answer, brew search, with the count only from a locally piping into wc -l. Do you think this needs to be clarified in the linked question? – grg Dec 27 '18 at 11:09
  • I think so, at least I didn't know that it did that – user289613 Dec 27 '18 at 13:33

You can use brew search to get a complete list of all available packages. This website provides a great search functionality to search in all the packages

    This is a link only answer that is subject to link rot... – Solar Mike May 20 '18 at 16:47
  • Hi - consider editing this in to the answer in the linked question. No need to delete anything here. Closed questions help with search engines to find the main Q/A for one topic so having several linked and closed questions helps the site and isn’t any penalty for you. – bmike May 20 '18 at 17:00
  • @SolarMike While I would agree in most cases, I disagree here for two reasons. 1. There's no point in copying and pasting everything on that link because it's way too long 2. It's subject to change on the daily, and therefore would be outdated pretty quickly. – JBis May 21 '18 at 3:00
  • @Josh perhaps a script that would download the latest list to the desktop would be more relevant... – Solar Mike May 21 '18 at 4:52
