Setting up Encore is easy. Simply open your terminal and run the relevant install command for your system.

Mac OS:

brew install encoredev/tap/encore


iwr | iex


curl -L | bash

Install Docker

To set up SQL databases for local development, Encore uses Docker. To run those applications, install Docker.

After installing it, check that it works by running docker version from your shell. If it works, you should see something like this:

Docker version 18.09.2, build 6247962

Next steps

Now that you have Encore up and running, get started by creating your first Encore app.
