tldr; backup and restore your brew environment with a single command

Backup + Restore Brew

Backups are critical, not matter what is being backed up. On MacOS the most popular package manager is Homebrew. With a few simple commands backing up and restoring a brew environment is a breeze.


# backup, defaults to `Brewfile`
$ brew bundle dump

# view backup
$ cat Brewfile

# restore
$ brew bundle
