CLI Quick Start Guide

This guide will walk you through downloading and installing the Seaplane command line interface (CLI). You can find more information about downloading and installing the Seaplane CLI here.

  1. Download the latest Seaplane Command Line Interface being careful to select the correct version for your operating system and machine. Do not open or unzip/extract the file just yet.
  2. To extract and install the CLI from the Downloads directory, replace $ARCH and $VERSION with whichever architecture and version you downloaded from the release page (or simply copy over the filename) then execute the command that matches your operating system:
    • For macOS use sudo unzip ./seaplane-$VERSION-$ -d /usr/local/bin/.
    • For Linux, use sudo tar xzf ./seaplane-$VERSION-$ARCH.tar.gz -C /usr/local/.
  3. To configure your API key, run seaplane account login then follow the instructions inside your terminal. You'll need to have a Seaplane API key handy for this step, so be sure to check Flightdeck if you need a quick copy and paste.
  4. You're ready to get started with Seaplane 🎉!

Working in Windows?

Windows does not have an equivalent to /usr/local/bin — you’ll need to either extract and use the Seaplane CLI from your current directory or make a dedicated directory and add it to PATH manually.
