Installing Dynare: no longer available on homebrew?


I’m trying to install Dynare with Octave (and Matlab) on MacOS. I’ve followed the instructions in

First it says I need homebrew/science. However homebrew says this package is depreciated. Here is what I get:

$ brew tap homebrew/science
Warning: homebrew/science was deprecated. This tap is now empty as all its formulae were migrated.

According to the homebrew/science GitHub, almost all of whatever was in homebrew/science has been incorporated into homebrew/core, so everything should work without science.

Next I followed in instructions to install dynare and got the following:

$ brew install dynare --with-matlab=/Applications/ --with-octave-version=4.2 --without-check
Error: No available formula with the name “dynare”
==> Searching for a previously deleted formula (in the last month)…
Error: No previously deleted formula found.
==> Searching for similarly named formulae…
==> Searching local taps…
Error: No similarly named formulae found.
==> Searching taps…
==> Searching taps on GitHub…
Error: No formulae found in taps.

Does anyone have any idea what I should do?


In short, wait. The Homebrew people have shut down homebrew-science so I’m working on getting dynare transferred into homebrew-core. I’ll post here when everything has been merged, probably in a couple of weeks.


This was fixed a long time ago. I forgot to post here. The corrected installation instructions can be found:
