sym CLI is as simple as running one command:
curl https://install.symops.io/sym.sh | bash
If your install succeeded, you should now have
sym in your path.
$ sym version 0.1.22
That's it! Everything else you need has been installed for you.
If the install script fails for any reason, we have a few alternatives.
Use your preferred package manager, or download a macOS installer.
brew install symopsio/tap/sym
pipx install sym-cli
pip install --user sym-cli
$ curl -LO https://github.com/symopsio/sym-cli-releases/releases/latest/download/sym-cli-darwin-x64.pkg $ sudo installer -pkg sym-cli-darwin-x64.pkg -target /
$ curl -LO https://github.com/symopsio/sym-cli-releases/releases/latest/download/sym-cli-linux-x64.deb $ sudo dpkg -i sym-cli-linux-x64.deb
Using SSH with the CLI requires that you have both the AWS CLI and the AWS Session Manager CLI Plugin installed and on your path. Sym uses Session Manager to securely connect to EC2 instances in your environment.
If you install
symmanually, you will also have to install these tools.
To install the Session Manager Plugin on ArchLinux, you can use
rpm2archiveto pull out the session-manager-plugin binary and add it to your path.
To check for any updates run:
$ sym update Quickly checking for Sym CLI updates...no updates found, carry on!
symhas an auto-updater that'll check periodically and install the update for you.
