There are four ways to install CockroachDB on macOS. See Release Notes for what's new in the latest release, v1.0.6.

Download the Binary

  1. Download the CockroachDB archive for OS X, and extract the binary:

    copy
    icon/buttons/copy
    $ curl https://binaries.cockroachdb.com/cockroach-v1.0.6.darwin-10.9-amd64.tgz \
    | tar -xJ
    Note:
    You can also download other versions of the binary listed on our Releases page.
  2. Copy the binary into your PATH so it's easy to execute cockroach commands from any shell:

    copy
    icon/buttons/copy
    cp -i cockroach-v1.0.6.darwin-10.9-amd64/cockroach /usr/local/bin

    If you get a permissions error, prefix the command with sudo.

  3. Make sure the CockroachDB executable works:

    copy
    icon/buttons/copy
    $ cockroach version

What's Next?

Quick start a single- or multi-node cluster locally and talk to it via the built-in SQL client.

Note:
By default, each node of a CockroachDB cluster periodically shares anonymous usage details with Cockroach Labs. For an explanation of the details that get shared and how to opt-out of reporting, see Diagnostics Reporting.
