Currently Sail supports both Linux and MacOS. Windows support is planned for a future release.
Before using Sail, there are several dependencies that must be installed on the host system:
- Chrome or Chromium - not required, but strongly recommended for best code-server support. If chrome is not installed, the default browser will be used.
For simple, secure and fast installation, the following command will install the latest version
of sail for your OS and architecture into
/usr/local/bin. You will need to have
in your $PATH in order to use it.
curl https://sail.dev/install.sh | bash
You can also manually install from the github releases and place the binary wherever you want.
For more advanced users who want to install the latest version from master, you can install Sail from source.
Sail uses go modules to build the project, so the easiest way to install it to your system is to clone it in a directory
outside of your
mkdir $HOME/src cd $HOME/src git clone https://github.com/cdr/sail.git cd sail go install
Verifying the Installation
To verify Sail is properly installed, run
sail --help on your system. If everything is installed
properly, you should see Sail’s help text.
In order to have an optimal experience while using Sail, we recommend installing the browser extension.
Just reinstall with whatever method you installed with.
