Using Homebrew on macOS in a multi-user environment
View Homebrew in a multi-user environment.md

I’ve had success using Homebrew in a multi-user environment the following way:

Create a shared Homebrew user

Create a new (non-GUI) user, group and home directory:

sudo /usr/sbin/sysadminctl -addUser brew \
  -fullName 'Homebrew' -admin -home /var/brew \
  -password - -UID 430 \

[SOLVED] Please help me get Homebrew working again on the DTK
View Please help me get Homebrew working again on the DTK.md

Update: SOLVED

Thanks to @indirect’s help, I’m back up and running. Turns out there’s that directory /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.6.0/specifications/default. It contains a couple of gemspecs you really can’t (and shouldn’t ever) delete.

With the default gemspecs back in place, I was able to apply the fiddle hack mentioned below, and got Homebrew working again.
