How not to update every package in existence, break your local environment, and spend the afternoon dealing with things you did not want to deal with when installing a package with Homebrew

2023-12-18 #cli

Friendly reminder that you can disable Homebrew's default auto update behaviour with HOMEBREW_NO_AUTO_UPDATE=1.

HOMEBREW_NO_AUTO_UPDATE=1 brew install git-secret

If you want to set and forget the setting, add it to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc.
