OLA Install Using Homebrew


Jump to: navigation, search

Installing OLA on the Mac using Homebrew is very easy. It can take a while the first time because you may need to download XCode and the OLA dependencies, which is true regardless of the installation approach you choose. But from then on, updating to new releases is very fast.

  • If you don’t already have Homebrew, you will need to start by installing that
  • Install OLA and all its dependencies by running:
brew install ola

This will take a while the first time as it downloads and installs everything. Once it's complete you can continue to Using OLA.


You can subscribe to the Open Lighting Announce list to be notified of new releases. To update simply run:

brew update
brew upgrade --all
