πŸ’Ύ Install Eask

This document guides you through the installation of Eask.

πŸ’Ύ Quick Install

Binary (Cross-platform)

Download the appropriate version for your platform from Eask Releases. Once downloaded, the binary can be run from anywhere. You don’t need to install it in a global location. This works well for shared hosts and other systems where you don’t have a privileged account.

Ideally, you should install it somewhere in your PATH for easy use. /usr/local/bin is the most probable location.

Using Shell (macOS and Linux)

$ curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/emacs-eask/cli/master/webinstall/install.sh | sh

Using Shell (Windows)

$ curl.exe -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/emacs-eask/cli/master/webinstall/install.bat | cmd /Q


If you have npm installed on your machine, you can install Eask with the following one-liner:

$ npm install -g @emacs-eask/cli

Homebrew (macOS or Linux)


MacPorts (macOS)


Chocolatey (Windows)

If you have Chocolatey installed on your machine, you can install Eask with the following one-liner:

$ chcoc install eask
