Installing wiretapGet up and running in seconds.
The easiest way to install
wiretap is to use homebrew if you’re on OSX or Linux.
We have our own tap available that gives the latest and greatest version.
Using npm or yarnInstalling with yarn
Do you want to use
wiretap in a linux only or CI/CD pipeline or workflow? Or you don’t want to/can’t use
a package manager like brew?
No problem. Use cURL to download and run our installer script.
Love containers? Don’t want to install anything? No problem, use our Docker image.
Next, run docker using the
-rm (remove the container after running) and
-v flags (mount local volume).
We enable the following default ports
9092 for the daemon, monitor, and websockets used
by ranch respectively.
Installing on Windows
We haven’t yet integrated with a Windows package manager, however we still build Windows binaries.
To grab your copy of
wiretap for Windows, you can pull it from the
latest releases on github
and download the Windows version for your CPU type.
Build from scratch
Want to tinker with the tool? Prefer your own compilations? Trust issues? No problem.
wiretap is built using golang, golang 1.18+ must be installed.
You have two choices for building, the first is to use Make (if you’re on OSX or linux), or you can just build using go build
Old school? Like the old ways? Yeah, us too. So let’s relive the glory days! This step will build both the wiretap daemon and the monitor UI.
Once built, the binary will be located in
bin/ and named
Build the monitor UI
To build just the monitor UI:
Build the daemon
To build just the daemon:
Building using go
Basically the same thing that Make does for you, except you get the pleasure of typing it out.
