Nice. An end-run around awful XCode downloads, apparently with Apple's blessing: Xcode, GCC, and Homebrew http://t.co/SZ2MkFvF

Only thing that would improve Command Line Tools for Xcode is if Homebrew could install them & add Xcode & SDKs later.

"Today, Apple added a beautiful new package to their official developer tools suite: Command Line Tools for Xcode. It's a 171 MB download that includes all of the tools a Homebrew should ever need. Best of all, it contains the proprietary headers that I couldn't ship myself."

I'll be pointing new Mac scientists to this package when they need to set up compilers.

Actually, it recently got easier to install gcc without also installing all of Xcode.

"This is an incredible day for the Homebrew community. You can now setup a complete OS X develop environment with a single 171.7 MB package download. It's official. It's legal. It'll be maintained."

Several months ago, I got fed up with having to download Xcode to build my software. I took the Xcode installer, ripped out all of the parts I didn't need, and made a nice installer for GCC. It ended up being ~200MB in size. It took 2 minutes to download.

OSX-GCC-Installer was born. Perfect.

Just discovered I don't have to use GCC anymore but can use official Apple alternative. Also no gigantic Xcode install!

All you need to get Homebrew going with the smallest download possible, now with Apple’s support.

Via Keith, a very useful link for those burdened with excessive, and mostly unused, XCode installations.

Kenneth Reitz extracted the necessary parts of XCode for compiling homebrew formulas and hosted it on Github as "Command Line Tools for Xcode." Now Apple has followed his lead and released an official package that does the same.
