Make sure you have the prerequisites set up:


When you use Instill CLI, you should add current user to docker group or use in root.

#Downloading Instill CLI

inst is available via Homebrew.


brew install instill-ai/tap/inst

Alternatively, inst supports cross platforms. You can just download the Instill CLI for your operating system from the Assets of the release page:

  • MacOS x86_64/amd64
  • Linux x86_64/amd64
  • Linux arm64/aarch64
  • Linux arm-v6
  • Windows x86_64/amd64

If you do download from the above links, the steps are slightly different compared to downloading the ILLA CLI from Homebrew. After downloading the CLI, you will have to make it executable. Let’s take Instill CLI on MacOS for example:

## Download Instill CLI binary file from the latest release version.
## Here we use `v0.1.0-alpha` as example
## unpack the file
tar -zxvf inst_Darwin_x86_64.tar.gz
cd bin
chmod +x inst
## Run the Instill CLI

The following command will check all available commends:

inst help
