Uninstall all the installed packages with Homebrew

Posted by ZedTuX 0n R00t on October 19, 2014

After having switched to Docker all my development environment, I’ve realized that still have running all the dependencies of my previous environment like for instance Postgres.

I have like 30 packages installed and it looks longer to me to remove them one-by-one than removing all and re-installing the 2 or 3 that I’d like to keep.

Uninstall all the packages

The command is really simple:

$ brew remove --force --ignore-dependencies $(brew list)

That’s all folks. :)
