You can install Crank in a variety of ways. Given that it's a command-line tool, we recommend you use the CLI to install it. If you'd prefer, packaged installers are also provided for Windows and macOS.
The simplest way to install Crank is via the command line. To quickly set up
/usr/local/bin/crank, run this script.
# On macOS or Linux $ curl -s https://get.crank.run/install.sh | sh
Note: this script requires
sudo and is not Windows compatible.
If you're running Windows or you're running macOS and prefer to install Crank via a packaged installer, use the following:
Note: the packages are currently unsigned, so you may need to explicitly allow them or trust them in your system preferences / security & privacy settings.
$ crank update
Crank will automatically attempt to update itself in the background. You can
crank update to explicitly update to the latest version.
On macOS, you can uninstall the CLI by typing:
$ rm -rf /usr/local/crank \ /usr/local/lib/crank \ /usr/local/bin/crank \ ~/.local/share/crank \ ~/Library/Caches/crank
On Linux, you can uninstall the CLI by typing:
$ rm /usr/local/bin/crank $ rm -rf /usr/local/lib/crank /usr/local/crank $ rm -rf ~/.local/share/crank ~/.cache/crank
On Windows, to uninstall Crank:
- Click Start > Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
- Select Crank CLI, and then click Uninstall. Note that the uninstaller is unsigned.
If this is unsuccessful, manually delete
%LOCALAPPDATA%\crank along with the directory in Program Files.
