On macOS, you can conveniently install the latest version of VAST via Homebrew. We host a tap from where you can install the latest release:

brew install tenzir/tenzir/vast

If you prefer to run the latest master branch, add --HEAD:

brew install --HEAD tenzir/tenzir/vast

To upgrade HEAD build, use reinstall instead of upgrade:

brew reinstall vast

Without Homebrew, you can always resort to a source build.

Launchd Integration

You can run VAST as a launchd service via brew services:

brew services start vast
