brew-cask provides a friendly homebrew-style CLI workflow for the administration of Mac applications distributed as binaries.

It’s homebrew for GUI apps.

Apps via homebrew-cask get installed into /opt/homebrew-cask/Caskroom/ and symlinked to /Applications/ so it works just like any other apps.

To use this

$ brew tap phinze/homebrew-cask
$ brew install brew-cask
$ brew cask install google-chrome
