Downgrade an application installed with Brew Cask
Homebrew Cask extends Homebrew and brings its elegance, simplicity, and speed to macOS applications and large binaries alike.
Most Casks are updated with the latest version of an appliation. But sometimes you want an older version of a Brew Cask application. You can track a Cask’ history on GitHub, e.g. Vagrant. I’ll be using Vagrant as an example during this guide.
How to find an application’ Cask file
Go to Homebrew Cask’ GitHub project page, press t, type in your application name.
View Cask history
Click the *.rb file of an application, and click the history button.
Pick a version
View the commit messages in the application history and click a hash.
Install older version
Remove the current version with the
brew cask uninstall command.
View the whole file on GitHub and copy-paste the raw link
