Quick start

Install using script

The command below will download the latest release and add the executable to your system's PATH. You can also use it to update Logdy.

bash
$ curl https://logdy.dev/install.sh | sh

Install with Homebrew (MacOS)

On MacOS you can use homebrew to install Logdy.

bash
$ brew install logdy

Download precompiled binary

Enter release page on Github and select recent release. Download a precompiled binary.

bash
# For Linux (x86)
wget https://github.com/logdyhq/logdy-core/releases/download/v0.10.0/logdy_linux_amd64
# For MacOS (ARM)
wget https://github.com/logdyhq/logdy-core/releases/download/v0.10.0/logdy_darwin_arm64
# Add Logdy to PATH: logdy.dev/docs/how-tos#how-to-add-logdy-to-path

More compliation target

You can find more precompiled libraries on the Github release page. We always always build for the following OS and architecture: linux/amd64 windows/386 windows/amd64 darwin/amd64 darwin/arm64 linux/arm64

MacOS users

On MacOS you may need to pull the binary out of quarantine.

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/binary

You may need to run it with sudo

Add Logdy to PATH (optional, but useful)

TIP

You can skip this step if you installed Logdy with an install.sh script or Homebrew.

Adding Logdy to PATH makes the whole experience a lot more fun.

Start the process

bash
$ any command that prints to STDOUT | logdy
# Example
$ tail -f logs.log | logdy

TIP

There are other modes in which you can run Logdy, these modes allow you to setup multiple sources of logs that stream output into a single Logdy UI instance

WARNING

Your downloaded library will have a different name, for example logdy-core_darwin_arm64. You can safely change it.

You should see the following output

log

Last line of the log will inform you about the address you need to visit to open the Web UI

Once you see the empty Web UI, that means everything is working! Web UI
