There are two ways to install Egison: installing with package manager or installing from Haskell Platform. The former method is available for only Linux and Mac users, while the latter is available for every user.

MacOS O (Homebrew) O
Windows X O

Install with Package Manager


$ sudo yum install


$ wget
$ sudo dpkg -i ./egison*.deb


$ brew update
$ brew tap egison/egison
$ brew install egison egison-tutorial

Install from Haskell Platform

1. Install Haskell Platform

To install Egison, you need to install Haskell Platform. This is because Egison is implemented in Haskell and distributed as a Hackage package.

If you use apt-get, execute the following commands.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install haskell-platform libncurses5-dev

Otherwise, download an installer from here.

2. Install Egison via Hackage

After you installed Haskell Platform, perform the following commands in the terminal.

$ cabal update
$ cabal install egison egison-tutorial
Installing executable(s) in /home/xxx/.cabal/bin
Registering egison-X.X.X...

When the installation is finished, there will be a message that tells the location of the installed binary. Add the path to the $PATH vairable so that your shell can find the egison command. For example, if you are using bash, run the following commands.

$ echo "PATH=\$PATH:/home/xxx/.cabal/bin" >> ~/.bashrc
$ source ~/.bashrc
