Step 1

Install Dotmesh

1) Download the dotmesh client binary.

curl -o /usr/local/bin/dm https://get.dotmesh.io/$(uname -s)/dm && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/dm

2) Create a local instance of the dotmesh server. NOTE: You do not need to keep a note of the secret for this tutorial.

dm cluster init

3) Check that the local dotmesh client can talk to the local dotmesh server.

dm version

If you can see the version of both the client and the server, your installation has been successful. Onward!
