Install the Cli

The Tugboat Command Line Tool is available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. In all three cases, it is a stand-alone binary.

  1. Download the CLI from https://dashboard.tugboat.qa/downloads.
  2. Copy it to a location that the operating system can find in its execution path.

Operating Systems

Windows

There is currently no installer included with the Windows version of the Tugboat Command Line Tool. You’ll either need to execute it from the directory where you downloaded it, or copy it to a directory in the system PATH variable.

For the latter, create a new folder at C:\Program Files\Tugboat, and copy the downloaded tugboat.exe to that folder. Then, add C:\Program Files\Tugboat to your system PATH variable. A good article describing how to modify the PATH variable for each version of Windows can be found at https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm

MacOS

Extract the downloaded tugboat.tar.gz file to /usr/local/bin

tar -zxf tugboat.tar.gz -C /usr/local/bin/

Linux

Extract the downloaded tugboat.tar.gz file to /usr/local/bin

sudo tar -zxf tugboat.tar.gz -C /usr/local/bin/
