Planck runs on macOS and Linux.

Planck requires no external dependencies. (There is no need for either the Java JVM or Node.js.)



The easiest way to install Planck on macOS is via Homebrew:

brew install planck

On Ubuntu you can use apt-get:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mfikes/planck
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install planck

For other Linux distros, see Building below.

Install Master

If you'd like to use Homebrew to install the latest unreleased version of Planck (directly from master in the GitHub repository), you can do the following:

brew remove planck
brew install --HEAD planck


To build Planck on Linux or macOS, get a copy of the source tree, install the needed dependencies and run


This results in a binary being placed in planck-c/build.
