[macOS] brew cask install filebot

Post by rednoah » 08 Oct 2014, 10:21

The easiest way to install and update FileBot on macOS is to have the brew package manager do it for you.


The installer/app.sh script will install brew and FileBot for you:

Code: Select all

sh -xu <<< "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/filebot/plugins/master/installer/app.sh)"


If you feel like running each command yourself step by step, please follow the instructions:

1. Install brew:

Code: Select all

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
:idea: You may need to run xcode-select --install first to install the Command Line Tools for Xcode.

2. Update brew package index:

Code: Select all

brew update
3. Install FileBot:

Code: Select all

brew cask install filebot
:arrow: Check if filebot is working:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:sysinfo

:arrow: If you want to upgrade filebot you can run:

Code: Select all

brew update && brew upgrade
:arrow: If you want to uninstall filebot you can run:

Code: Select all

brew cask zap filebot
:idea: If you have $PATH issues when running filebot (e.g. if /usr/local/bin is not in the $PATH) then you may use the absolute path to the executable:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/bin/filebot

:idea: If you want understand what is executed exactly when you call filebot you can run:

Code: Select all

ls -l `which filebot`
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
