Install nio locally

You do not need to install nio to build systems in the the System Designer—running nio in the cloud is the easiest way to begin. But to see the power of nio as a distributed system, you should install and run nio locally or at the edge.

[info] Requirements

Linux / MacOS

Windows users, click here for installation instructions.


Open a terminal (Applications > Utilities > Terminal on MacOS), and install nio using Python’s pip3 installer (verify the filepath and binary filename below—the Xs represent the date of the binary in YYYYMMDD format):

pip3 install -U ~/Downloads/nio_lite-XXXXXXXX-py3-none-any.whl

MacOS Users: You may be prompted to install a dependency called "clang". This is a standard component that comes directly from Apple, so it's safe to click "OK" and re-run the command above.

You can test that nio is correctly installed by running the following command:

which niod

If you don’t see a path to niod, make sure Python’s binary directory is on your PATH.

Help setting your PATH: Windows / MacOS.
