Binary Install #
Homechart can be deployed as a standalone binary on Linux (amd64 and arm) from our releases website.
1. Review the requirements #
Ensure your system meets the Server Requirements.
2. Download Homechart #
Visit https://releases.homechart.app/ and download the version of Homechart for your platform. Optionally, you can verify your download by comparing the SHA-512 sum:
$ sha256sum -c homechart_latest_linux_amd64.gz.sha256
Once your download has completed, decompress it:
$ gzip -d homechart_latest_linux_arm.gz $ mv /usr/local/bin/homechart $ chmod +x /usr/local/bin/homechart
3. Run Homechart #
The Homechart executable can be ran from any directory and stores no files locally. You will need to provide some configuration settings via environment variables or a JSON configuration file, see Configuration Options.
A minimal command line for Homechart with a config file in the current directory:
$ homechart -c config.yaml serve
A base homechart.service file with a config file in /usr/local/etc:

We do something similar to this method for running Homechart in the cloud.
