The instructions to install like that were published on the web site a bit too early, they should have been commented out. For now you still have to build from source; will post here when brew install cadabra2 works.

There is now the option to install directly using homebrew. First install MacTeX, either directly from its website, or using homebrew,

brew tap caskroom/cask
brew cask install mactex

Then install cadabra using

brew tap kpeeters/repo
brew install cadabra2

These instructions are now also on the download page. Please let me know if you run into any trouble; this has not yet received a lot of testing!
