Manage Homebrew

Support/Suggested Use Guidance.

(this is a community-curated set of best practices / FAQ on the feature's support and solutions/workarounds.)


It's important to note the homebrew resources that you choose to include are stored in cache / cookies on your computer and your specific browser. If you use different browsers on the same computer or different computers, you must load the resources for each environment you plan on using.


FAQ

I've lost all my homebrew content?!

You may have been troubleshooting another problem and part of the process was to delete local cookies/cache for your browser, if so... you also deleted the homebrew's content.  You'll need to reload.


I was pulling up <content type> and the system said there was corruption!

One of the homebrew files has malformed data. The site has just removed that entire file's contents from your view.
If you know what file it was, please leave a comment here or report it to the community discord channel for #Brew-conversion.
