I have been trying to install nginx v1.3.x on my Macbook Pro for a while now to test the native websockets support but I could not find a way to install version 1.3.
I had a look with
brew info nginx and found a clue: a devel flag:
require 'formula' class Nginx < Formula # Other code devel do url 'https://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.3.13.tar.gz' sha1 'b09b1c35b2b741292d41db1caa3b8a4123805a4c' end # Other code end
I should really have found this earlier or tried to look harder, but it turns out homebrew has a
--devel flag for the install command. This defines the
devel variable and is caught by the if block above.
So simple really, but I googled to no avail, so hopefully this post will come up for anyone else who has this problem.
