(TIL) Homebrew: Switch Versions of a Brew Formula

less than 1 minute read

If you’ve installed a couple versions of a program via brew and you’d like to switch from the currently linked version to the other installed version, you can use the switch command. For instance, if you are on version 1.8.2 of phantomjs and you’d like to switch to 1.9.0, you can simply invoke:

brew switch phantomjs 1.9.0

More generically:

brew switch <formula> <version>

Via jbranchaud/til.
