Installing the Fuzzbuzz CLI

You can install the Fuzzbuzz CLI using some popular package managers, or by downloading and unpacking binary releases.

Fuzzbuzz currently supports the following operating systems and package managers:

Homebrew on MacOS

You an use Homebrew to manage the installation of Fuzzbuzz packages on your system. If you don't already have Homebrew set up, you can find installation instructions here or install the Fuzzbuzz CLI manually. Installing with Homebrew makes it simple to keep the CLI up to date, since new signed releases will be downloaded whenever brew upgrade is run.

First, install the Fuzzbuzz tap, a Homebrew repository that contains all of our installable packages. Installation instructions will be provided when you are added to the beta.

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

Upgrading

To update to the latest Fuzzbuzz CLI, first update Homebrew:

brew update

Then, upgrade the CLI itself:

brew upgrade fuzzbuzz/tap/cli

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

Installation instructions for the CLI itself will be provided when you are added to the beta.

Verifying your installation

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.

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

sudo ./install-fuzzbuzz-cli

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.

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
