Installation for Mac, Linux, and WSL
This installs the Beam executable in
/usr/local/bin. It will also check if you have the Beam SDK Python Package installed, and install it if you don’t.
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/slai-labs/get-beam/main/get-beam.sh -sSfL | sh
Beam will also create a credentials file in
~/.beam/config. When you run
beam configure, your API keys will be saved to this file.
You can maintain many different sets of credentials. Your default credentials will always live at the top of the file.
Beam does not currently provide a native Windows build. In the meantime, you can install Beam using Windows Subsystem for Linux.
Once installed, you can upgrade the CLI by running:
The Python SDK can be upgraded using
python3 -m pip install --upgrade beam-sdk
Beam’s binary is located in
/usr/local/bin. You can delete it like this:
rm -rf /usr/local/bin/beam
The Python SDK can be uninstalled using
python3 -m pip uninstall beam-sdk
