Wind turbines on the mountain

As of 3.0, Homebrew supports Mac's with Apple silicon

I suppose the number one download for brew is wget which is missing from macOS probably due to its GPL licence. curl just isn't the same. I looked at building wget from source but it is a quagmire worth avoiding. Installing it via Homebrew was simple and delightfully all of the correctarm64_big_sur.bottle variety.

Installing Homebrew on an M1 based Mac is exactly the same as installing on an Intel Mac.

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

TL:DR — It just works!

% brew doctor
Your system is ready to brew.
% brew install wget
