Install Steampipe: mac

Use the tabs above to install on a different OS version. These packages are built and signed by Turbot's Steampipe development team, and you can peruse them here.

We recommend installing Homebrew which provides pre-built binaries for Mac.
STEP 1: Tap Turbot's Cask
~$ brew tap turbot/tap
STEP 2: Install Steampipe
~$ brew install steampipe
STEP 3: Version Check
~$ steampipe -v
steampipe version 0.2.0
RESULT!: Install your first plugin
~$ steampipe plugin install steampipe
Installed plugin: steampipe
Get to work and run your first query...
~$ steampipe query "select name from steampipe_registry_plugin;"
| name |
| turbot/aws |
| turbot/steampipe |
| turbot/azure |

Whoa!? What just happened?

Steampipe's one step installer downloaded the steampipe binary, installed it into /usr/local/bin, and then created a .steampipe directory in your home directory with all the supporting libraries and configuration needed to get started (including PostgreSQL). Now, get to work!

How do you update Steampipe?

UPDATE STEP 1: Update Homebrew
~$ brew update
UPDATE STEP 2: Update Steampipe
~$ brew upgrade steampipe

Want more control over the install process?

Steampipe is also available as a binary executable (or you can build from source). To manually install Steampipe, unzip the executable and move it to a directory included in your system's PATH.

You can access the source, zipped executables and binary checksums from the releases section of the Steampipe Github repo.
