Sheldon can be installed using Homebrew.
brew install sheldon
Sheldon can be installed from Crates.io using Cargo, the Rust package manager.
cargo install sheldon
In some circumstances this can fail due to the fact that Cargo does not use
Cargo.lock file by default. You can force Cargo to use it using the
cargo install sheldon --locked
Sheldon can be installed using
cargo-binstall, which will
download the release artifacts directly from the GitHub release.
cargo binstall sheldon
Pre-built binaries for Linux (x86-64, aarch64, armv7) and macOS (x86-64) are provided. These can be downloaded directly from the the releases page.
Alternatively, the following script can be used to automatically detect your host
system, download the required artifact, and extract the
sheldon binary to the
curl --proto '=https' -fLsS https://rossmacarthur.github.io/install/crate.sh \ | bash -s -- --repo rossmacarthur/sheldon --to ~/.local/bin
