Installing flyctl

Flyctl is a command-line utility that lets you work with Fly, from creating your account to deploying your applications. It runs on your local device so you'll want to install the version that's appropriate for your operating system:

macOS

If you have the Homebrew package manager installed, flyctl can be installed by running:

brew install flyctl

If not, you can run the install script:

curl -L https://fly.io/install.sh | sh

After that, you should add the flyctl directory to your shell rc file. Check the output of the install script for the exact command. Copy, paste and run it and the flyctl command will be available everywhere. Or for maximum efficiency, you can use the fly command!
