But.. What's Homebrew?

Homebrew is a package manager for OS X.

With Homebrew you can install thousands of command-line applications and libraries that would require manual compilation, which is not always very straight-forward.
Cakebrew brings this to a whole new level of simplicity. Install command-line tools from an App. Could it be easier?
