Install Monaco

This guide shows you how to download Monaco and install it on your operating system (Linux/macOS or Windows).

  1. Go to the Monaco release page.
  2. Download the appropriate version.
  3. Check that the Monaco binary is available on your PATH. This process will differ depending on your operating system (see steps below).

For Linux/macOS, we recommend using curl. You can download it from here or use wget.

# Linux
# x64
curl -L https://github.com/dynatrace-oss/dynatrace-monitoring-as-code/releases/download/v1.7.0/monaco-linux-amd64 -o monaco
# x86
curl -L https://github.com/dynatrace-oss/dynatrace-monitoring-as-code/releases/download/v1.7.0/monaco-linux-386 -o monaco
# macOS
curl -L https://github.com/dynatrace-oss/dynatrace-monitoring-as-code/releases/download/v1.7.0/monaco-darwin-10.16-amd64 -o monaco

Make the binary executable:

chmod +x monaco

Optionally, install Monaco to a central location in your PATH. This command assumes that the binary is currently in your downloads folder and that your $PATH includes /usr/local/bin:

# Use any path that suits you; this is just a standard example. Install sudo if needed.
sudo mv ~/Downloads/monaco /usr/local/bin/

Now you can execute the monaco command to verify the download.

monaco
You are currently using the old CLI structure which will be used by
default until monaco version 2.0.0
Check out the beta of the new CLI by adding the environment variable
"NEW_CLI".
We can't wait for your feedback.
