Installing flyctl

Flyctl is a command-line utility that lets you work with Fly, from creating your account to deploying your applications. It runs on your local device so you'll want to install the version that's appropriate for your operating system:

macOS Linux Windows


If you have the Homebrew package manager installed, flyctl can be installed by running:

brew install superfly/tap/flyctl

If not, you can run the install script:

curl -L | sh


Run the install script:

curl -L | sh


Run the Powershell install script:

iwr | iex

If your Windows installation has never been exposed to Internet Explorer, this command may produce an error:

iwr : The response content cannot be parsed because the Internet Explorer engine is not available, or Internet Explorer's first-launch configuration is not complete. Specify the UseBasicParsing parameter and try again.

In this case, run the command:

iwr -useBasicParsing | iex

And you'll be good to go.
