Installing Juju’s most recent stable release
Instructions differ for each operating system:
Juju can be installed with the following command:
sudo snap install juju --classic
snap command not available?: If you do not have snap installed, visit snapcraft.io for instructions.
Install Juju on macOS with Homebrew. Run the following command into Terminal:
brew install juju
Alternative installation methods
Warning: Since Juju 2.6, downloading via PPA is no longer available.
If you would prefer to avoid a snap-based installation, there are alternatives.
Using a Personal Package Archive (PPA)
To install the most recent stable version using a PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository -yu ppa:juju/stable sudo apt install juju
Installing Juju development releases
We recommend that you install Juju via the snap and track the edge channel:
sudo snap install juju --classic --edge
Using a PPA
To install the development version using a PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository -yu ppa:juju/devel sudo apt install juju
All development release binaries are published on Launchpad.
Finding release notes
Release notes are available on Discourse.
Installing multiple Juju series
Some environments may see the need to run both the 1.x and the 2.x series of Juju concurrently. See page Running multiple versions of Juju for guidance.
Juju functionality can be extended through the use of plugins. See the Juju plugins page for information.
