Most distro's include node in their package managers, but we require the usage of Node 18 LTS at the moment. Node 20 support will come in a future release.

These instructions use curl to download the install scripts. wget -O- does the same thing.

Node, using nvm

Node Version Manager is a great tool for installing, updating, and switching Node installs on your system.

curl -o- | bash

After nvm is installed, use it to install Node 18 LTS: nvm install 18


Yarn provides powerful, reliable and deterministic package management functionality.

npm install -g yarn

Install Electric UI

The install script downloads arc, validates your environment, and prepares you for project creation.

curl | bash
