Install Nerd Fonts via Homebrew [updated & fixed]

Nerd Fonts for your IDE

https://www.nerdfonts.com/font-downloads

The following solution thanks to @hackerzgz & @snacky101 will install all nerd fonts;

brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
brew search '/font-.*-nerd-font/' | awk '{ print $1 }' | xargs -I{} brew install --cask {} || true

If you prefer to explicitly list the nerd fonts you want to install then you can use the solution provided by @frame45

First off, thanks for making this! Secondly, font-jetbrainsmono-nerd-font should actually be font-jetbrains-mono-nerd-font.

While running the install script I noticed that quite a few fonts were failing. After looking back at the output I found that the font names that had Uppercase letters in them or concatenated multiple words together were outdated names. I'm including the names that worked for me for the same fonts in the shell script (a couple may be out of order).

I would have uploaded a .txt file or a new .sh file, but apparently I can't so I'm going to include it in this so you can more easily copy/paste it into your own dummy file and do a diff to find specifically which ones' names need to be updated.

You don't need to tap before each. It's done once to add cask-fonts to brew sources.

Hi, thanks all for the great work. Though, I'm interested in Source Code Pro why is it named sauce-code-pro here?

Source Code Pro is a reserved name, particularly the "Source" part.

@frame45 Thanks for that. It might be worth to contribute this as a formula instead to https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-cask-fonts to enable a bundle, so you can install all of them by simply running:

brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts && brew install --cask font-nerd-fonts

@snacky101

Simply, How about this way?

brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
brew search '/font-.*-nerd-font/' | awk '{ print $1 }' | xargs brew install --cask

Always return true can skip the: Error: It seems there is already a Font at 'xxx' 😊

doing an upgrade once you've installed all of these is the pits... i do wish it were bundled a bit better. Be warned if you install the bulk in a loop or via a script

Thoughts about adding this tap to Homebrew's main repo? I'd say nerd fonts are common enough.

agreed. would be great to have these as part of the main repo.
