Installing on macOS

The easiest way to install and uninstall Appsody on macOS is to use Homebrew.


If you don't have the Xcode Command Line Tools installed on your system, install them by running:

xcode-select --install

If you are installing with Homebrew and don't have Homebrew installed, you can install it by running:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Installing with Homebrew

To install Appsody with Homebrew, run:

brew install appsody/appsody/appsody

You can now follow the Getting Started instructions to create your first containerized development environment with a running Hello World! application.


If you installed Appsody using Homebrew, you can upgrade Appsody on your system by running the following command:

brew upgrade appsody

This command checks the installed Appsody folder for outdated installations and replaces them with newer versions.


To uninstall Appsody, run the following command:

brew uninstall appsody

You might also want to remove the .appsody directory that gets created, by default, within your home directory: rm -rf ~/.appsody.
