Step 2: Install the tools

Packaging System Demo

In order to start packaging applications with Habitat, you'll need two bits of software on your workstation:

  1. The Habitat CLI tool
  2. Docker*

Instructions for installing Habitat and Docker can be found in the docs.

You can verify that Habitat was successfully installed by checking the version.

$ hab --version

*Habitat uses Docker to create a clean build room environment known as the Habitat Studio. You'll learn more about the Studio later in this demo.
