Install an older version of a formular
brew install node@12 # => Error: node@12 has been disabled because it is not supported upstream!
Based on this answer on StackOverflow, this error appears cause this Node version is unmaintained:
brew edit node@12 # .... # /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-core/Formula/[email protected] disable! date: "2022-07-31", because: :unmaintained # ....
So if we comment/delete this line, we can install normally by command:
brew install node@12
BUT =)) It not work on MacOS Ventura. With Ventura, after deleting above line, we need to
cd and install from file:
cd /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-core/Formula/ brew install ./[email protected]
