Manual Installation

Obtaining the CLI

To obtain the CLI use the cluster menu and select the option to get the Playground CLI

download CLI

Alternatively, go to the Downloads section and manually select the version.

Installing the CLI

Assuming your file is downloaded on /<my_downloads_path>/playground_<version>.tgz

Install the playground binary by executing:

$ cd /<my_downloads_path>
$ tar xvzf playground_<version>.tgz
# You may choose any other path of your choice.
$ mkdir -p $HOME/.napptive/bin
$ cp playground/playground $HOME/.napptive/bin/.

Now let’s add the playground to the ${PATH}:

For Bash

$ echo export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.napptive/bin >> $HOME/.bashrc
$ source $HOME/.bashrc


$ echo export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.napptive/bin >> $HOME/.zshrc
$ source $HOME/.zshrc

MacOS specific steps

Sometimes, when MacOS cannot verify the developer, you may receive a notification about the application not being trusted:

MacOS warning

To use the playground, you need to trust the application. Go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General and enable the blocked application from Allow apps downloaded from pane at the bottom of the window.


Use of local storage

The CLI will create and use ${HOME}/.napptive to store information about the configured cluster.
