MariaDB on Apple Silicon / M1 Macs

I recently bought a Mac Mini with the new Apple Silicon M1 processor. Most of the software works great already, but MariaDB was a prominent exception.

Based on the fantastic work of other people, I went ahead and fixed that, so you can install MariaDB (without RocksDB) directly from my Homebrew tap (install Homebrew first if you haven’t already) with the following commands:

brew tap tholu/tap
brew install tholu/tap/mariadb
