To install MySQL, run the following:
brew install mysql

ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/mysql/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents
Now mysql is running, and you have a user named root with no password.
To install ImageMagick, run the following:
brew install imagemagick --with-freetype --with-fontconfig
Make sure to add freetype and fontconfig switches, as they are needed for image captcha
To install Git, run the following:
brew install git
Pronto (Only for development)
The Rugged gem which is a dependency for Pronto, requires cmake:
brew install cmake
To install Redis, run the following:
brew install redis
