brew install hugo pandoc fish syncthing pyenv pipx rename \ fdupes rclone tectonic poetry bfg gdal
Old versions of stuff
homebrew no longer supports multiple versions as a mainline feature; there is a developer hack:
brew unlink hugo brew extract --version=0.112.5 hugo homebrew/core brew install firstname.lastname@example.org brew link hugo
That did not work for me.
