If you have recently upgraded to macOS Ventura 13 or purchased a device with Ventura preinstalled, it is recommended that you install HomeBrew on your Mac running Ventura. HomeBrew is a comprehensive collection of command line utilities specifically designed for advanced users. However, the average person does not need to be concerned with this aspect of the software.

One of the primary benefits of using HomeBrew is the ability to easily install software such as Git, Ruby, and Node using a Mac package manager. This can help you avoid potential security concerns that may arise when using sudo to install software, such as Node.

If you have previously installed HomeBrew on a Mac, the process should be familiar to you. Please note that the installer script URL has been updated, and older versions will not work as the name “master” has been changed to “HEAD” in the URL.
