Installing the Fuzzbuzz CLI

Quick Start

You can install the Fuzzbuzz CLI using some popular package managers, or by downloading and unpacking binary releases. The fastest way to get set up is using our install script:

curl -O && bash ./

You can find detailed instructions for the following installation methods below:

Apt on Debian

First, make sure that your current apt sources are up to date, and that you have software-properties-common, gnupg, and curl installed:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y gnupg software-properties-common curl

Then, download and install the Fuzzbuzz archive keyring:

curl -O && sudo dpkg -i fuzzbuzz-archive-keyring_20201228-1_all.deb

Add the Fuzzbuzz apt repository to your sources:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb v0 user"

Finally, install Fuzzbuzz:

sudo apt-get install fuzzbuzz


To update to the latest Fuzzbuzz CLI, first update your Apt sources:

sudo apt-get update

Then, upgrade the CLI itself:

sudo apt-get install fuzzbuzz

Manual Installation

Installation Script

Users running Non-Debian Linux distributions may use our install script to download and set-up the Fuzzbuzz CLI. We recommend reading it over before using it. It simply downloads the latest version of the Fuzzbuzz binary, and unpacks it to /opt/fuzzbuzz, and creates a symlink to fuzzbuzz in /usr/bin.

Download it by running:

curl -O

After you've downloaded the script, you can run it:

chmod +x ./ && ./

Download pre-compiled binaries

Fuzzbuzz supports fully manual installations, which involves downloading and unpacking a tarball of pre-compiled binaries. The fuzzbuzz CLI can then be run from the bin directory of the unpacked folder. You can find a listing of all Fuzzbuzz releases here, or download the latest release:

curl -O

You can uncompress the download by running the following command:

tar -xzf ./fuzzbuzz_latest.tar.gz

Once you have downloaded the CLI, we recommend adding the fuzzbuzz binary to your PATH. This can be done by creating a symbolic link in a directory already in your path, such as /usr/local/bin:

sudo ln -s $PWD/bin/fuzzbuzz /usr/local/bin/fuzzbuzz

You may also add the bin directory of the fuzzbuzz folder to your PATH variable. This process may differ depending on your operating system.

Verifying your installation

To verify your new Fuzzbuzz CLI installation, create a new terminal session, and run the help command:

fuzzbuzz --help

You may use this same flag for information about any subcommand:

fuzzbuzz build --help
