Install Vector

Vector compiles to a single binary, making it easy to install.

On *nix systems, its only dependency will be on a libc. Your operating system will generally already have this available.

Using static musl builds

We also publish relesae artifacts that are statically linked with musl for the libc implementation that results in a static binary with no dependencies (these artifacts have musl in their name). These can be useful in very stripped down environments without a libc implementation.

Install script

This light-weight script will perform platform detection and determine the best method to install Vector:

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.vector.dev | sh
explain this command
