Install on macOS

To easily install Crystal on macOS you can use Homebrew.

brew update
brew install crystal

You should be able to install the latest version from homebrew. Crystal’s core-team help maintain that formula.


When a new Crystal version is released you can upgrade your system using:

brew update
brew upgrade crystal


Alternatively, there are .tar.gz and .pkg files in each release for x86-64 and aarch64. See Install from a tar.gz for instructions.
