This section describes the recommended way of installing EdgeDB.

The first step is to install the EdgeDB command line tools.

If you are using Linux or macOS, open a terminal and enter the following command:

curl --proto '=https' -sSf1 | sh

Follow the script instructions to complete the CLI installation.

Alternatively, you can install edgedb-cli using a supported package manager as described on the Downloads page under the “Other Installation Options” section.

Once the edgedb command-line tool is installed, use the following command to install the latest EdgeDB server release:

edgedb server install

Refer to the command manual page for more information and installation options (edgedb server install --help).
