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

Simply, How about this way?

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

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

@hackerzgz thank you for feedback.

Thanks a lot for the script! Love you all.

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

Thank you! This rocks! 💣

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

If you're getting the error:
Error: homebrew/cask-fonts was deprecated. This tap is now empty and all its contents were either deleted or migrated
When running brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts, it's because in May 16, 2024 the fonts previously available in homebrew/cask-fonts have been moved to the main homebrew/cask repository. So you can just directly install any fonts you want without tapping.
