yb uses Docker for isolating the build environment. You can install Docker here: https://hub.docker.com/search/?type=edition&offering=community

If you’re using WSL on Windows, you will need to use Docker in WSL2.


You can install yb using Homebrew:

brew install yourbase/yourbase/yb

or you can download a binary from the latest GitHub release and place it in your PATH.

Linux (and WSL2)

On Debian-based distributions (including Ubuntu), you can use our APT repository:

# Import the signing key
sudo curl -fsSLo /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/yourbase.asc https://apt.yourbase.io/signing-key.asc

# Add the YourBase APT repository to the list of sources
echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/yourbase.asc] https://apt.yourbase.io stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yourbase.list

# Update the package list and install yb
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install yb

For Red Hat, Fedora, or CentOS, you can install the RPM from the latest GitHub release. For other distributions, copy the Linux binary from the release into your PATH.
