# Installation

Install bashly using one of these methods.

Bashly requires Ruby 3.0 or higher (ruby -v).

gem install bashly

Installing Ruby

If you have docker installed, you can create an alias that will run the docker image:

alias bashly='docker run --rm -it --user $(id -u):$(id -g) --volume "$PWD:/app" dannyben/bashly'

# Bash Completions

To enable bash completions for the bashly executable itself run:

bashly completions --install

You might need to install the bash-completion package for your operating system if it is not already installed. For example:

brew install bash-completion
# or
sudo apt install bash-completion

# Prerequisites

The bash scripts generated by bashly can run in any shell, but require that bash 4 or higher is installed.

Mac users can upgrade bash by running:

brew install bash
