The brig CLI
brig CLI provides access to the full repertoire of supported user
interactions in Brigade, whether it’s logging into Brigade with
bootstrapping a new Brigade project with
brig init, creating events with
brig event create – the list goes on.
In this doc, we’ll go over how to install brig and then give a brief overview of the suite of commands that brig provides.
brig can be installed by downloading the appropriate pre-built
binary from our releases page
to a directory on your machine that is included in your
variable. On some systems, it is even easier than this.
You can also build brig from source; see the Developers guide for more info.
curl -Lo /usr/local/bin/brig https://github.com/brigadecore/brigade/releases/download/v2.6.0/brig-linux-amd64 chmod +x /usr/local/bin/brig
The popular Homebrew package manager provides the most convenient method of installing the Brigade CLI on a Mac:
$ brew install brigade-cli
Alternatively, you can install manually by directly downloading a pre-built binary:
$ curl -Lo /usr/local/bin/brig https://github.com/brigadecore/brigade/releases/download/v2.6.0/brig-darwin-amd64 $ chmod +x /usr/local/bin/brig
> mkdir -force $env:USERPROFILE\bin > (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile("https://github.com/brigadecore/brigade/releases/download/v2.6.0/brig-windows-amd64.exe", "$ENV:USERPROFILE\bin\brig.exe") > $env:PATH+=";$env:USERPROFILE\bin"
The script above downloads brig.exe and adds it to your PATH for the current session. Add the following line to your PowerShell Profile to make the change permanent.
