How to Install Homebrew on macOS 11

Homebrew is an open-source, free software package management system that simplifies the installation of software on macOS (and Linux). 

Installing Homebrew on macOS Monterey is as easy as ever.

Step 1. Open the Terminal Application. Type in the terminal 

xcode-select --install

Then press enter. You’ll be prompted to enter the admin password to start the installation, then to accept the software license to install Xcode’s Command Line Developer Tools. This process will happen automatically.

Step 2. In your web browser, navigate to brew.sh. Copy and paste the following command from their website (or this one) into your Terminal application:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.
sh)"

Press Enter. You will be prompted to enter your password during this installation; however, your keystrokes will not appear in the terminal. This is an intended security feature. Type your password as normal and press enter.

Type the letter for yes when prompted and press enter. 

Homebrew is now installed on your machine!
