A simple script for detecting whether you have outdated homebrew packages and notifying you.


When this project is done, the hope is you can just brew install this program. But for now, here are the dependencies you need to install before this program will work:

babashka, terminal-notifier

brew install borkdude/brew/babashka
brew install terminal-notifier



If everything is up-to-date, nothing will happen. If something went wrong, you will get notified using a standard Mac OS notification. The first time this happens you will likely be asked to give terminal-notifier permission to send a notification.

Another thing this program does is check to see if homebrew is still fine. Sometimes upgrades will cause homebrew to be broken in some way. If this happens, the script will notify you. It does this by executing brew doctor and testing to see if your system is ready to brew or not.
