Fission is your toolkit for easily interfacing with IPFS. To get started, you'll need to install IPFS as well as the Fission CLI tool.
If you don't want to mess around with running an IPFS daemon in the command line, ipfs-desktop is a great option. You can download the release from their Github page or use your favorite package manager:
brew cask install ipfs
choco install ipfs-desktop
snap install ipfs-desktop
We recommend installing IPFS from a prebuilt package. First, download the correct package for your platform.
If you are a Mac Homebrew user,
brew install ipfs is even easier.
Untar the archive and run the
./install.sh script (which just moves the binary to a local bin path).
$ tar xvfz go-ipfs.tar.gz$ cd go-ipfs$ ./install.sh
Unzip the archive and move
ipfs.exe to your

We have a brew recipe to get you up and running quickly on MacOS:
$ brew tap fission-suite/fission$ brew install fission-cli
Head over to our releases page on Github and download the latest release for your operating system.
Unzip the file, and then make the binary executable:
$ cd ~/Downloads$ sudo chmod +x ./fission-cli-exe
And move the file to your PATH:
$ sudo mv ./fission-cli-exe /usr/local/bin/fission
(Linux Only) Linux requires an additional dependency:
$ sudo apt update$ sudo apt install libpq-dev
That's it! Double check that it's installed correctly:
