Installing Warp

Once you are let into the Early-Access Program you will get access to the Warp binaries for your architecture over our Discord #releases channel.

When you download one of the release tarballs / zipfiles, you'll find there's only a single binary called warp within them. Place this binary somewhere in your PATH and you'll be good to go!

Once you've done this, you can run warp setup to make sure your machine is configured correctly to use Warp.

Special considerations for macOS

When you run warp setup on a Mac, you'll be asked to enter your sudo password. This is because to make builds completely relocatable on Mac, we need to do a few things to create a root-level folder in your file system.

This is harmless, and it will leave you with a new virtual disk listed in your Disk Utility program called warp Store.

After warp setup is complete, you should be able to see a folder called /warp from within your terminal. Everything related to warp will be installed, downloaded, and saved there.
