Installation

For non-technical users, the recommended way to install is to use the install script to install on MacOs, Ubuntu, or other Unix-like OS, by copying the following into a terminal:

bash <(curl -sSf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/samuelvanderwaal/metaboss/main/scripts/install.sh)

This will download the appropriate binary for your system and install it. Feel free to inspect the install script directly at the link to see what you are running before you run the command.

For Windows, either use the prebuilt binary in the following section, or install Windows Subsystem Linux (WSL) to use the Ubuntu terminal to run the above installation script.

To install WSL on Windows, either run wsl --install -d ubuntu in the cmd prompt terminal, or install "Ubuntu" from the Windows app store. Once you have that set up you can simply run the install script in the WSL terminal. You will then run all your Metaboss commands from WSL as well.

Binaries

Linux, MacOS and Windows binaries available in releases, thanks to CI work done by Kartik Soneji.

Install From Source

Install Rust.

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh

Clone the source:

git clone git@github.com:samuelvanderwaal/metaboss.git

or

git clone https://github.com/samuelvanderwaal/metaboss.git

On Ubuntu you may need some additional packages:

sudo apt install libssl-dev libudev-dev pkg-config

Change directory and check out the main branch:

cd metaboss
git checkout main

Install or build with Rust:

cargo install --path ./

or

cargo build --release

Set Up Your Solana Config

If you have the Solana CLI installed (recommended) you can setup your RPC and keypair so you don't have to pass them into Metaboss:

solana config set --url <rpc url> --keypair <path to keypair file>
