You need node and yarn installed first.

Most distro's include this in their package managers, though we recommend installing the latest versions manually for additional control.

These instructions use curl to download the install scripts.
If you don't have curl installed, 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 14: nvm install 14

We recommend avoiding 15.4.0 at this time (for compatibility reasons).


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

You can audit the installer source here.
