Before you start, make sure you have the following applications and their minimum versions installed, in addition to Node.js and pnpm (as mentioned earlier):
- Node.js 18.0.0 or later.
- pnpm 8.6.2 or later.
- macOS, Windows (including WSL), and Linux are supported.
To install Node.js, follow the instructions based on your operating system:
For Windows or macOS, visit the official Node.js website: https://nodejs.org/ and download the latest or LTS version (18.0.0 or above). Run the installer and follow the setup wizard.
For Linux, you can use a package manager (nvm) or download the binaries from the official Node.js website. For example, using the package manager
sudo apt update sudo apt install nodejs
Ensure that the installed version is 18.0.0 or above:
To install pnpm, you can use npm, the Node.js package manager. Open your terminal or command prompt and run the following command:
npm install -g pnpm
Make sure that the installed version of pnpm is 8.6.2 or above:
Alternatively you can also install it from its official website https://pnpm.io/.
Optional Requirements for a Local Database:
If you want to use a local database, it is recommended to install “brew” and “sqld”.
To install brew, it is recommended to use brew.sh from https://brew.sh/ and follow its instructions.
Once you have installed it and performed updates with
brew update --auto-update, you can install “sqld” as follows:
brew tap libsql/sqld brew install sqld-beta sqld --help
Note: Please ensure to add sqld to you system PATH
This will allow you to work with the local database without modifying the “.env” file.
Please note that these optional requirements are only necessary if you want to use a local database. Otherwise, you can continue with the rest of the configuration as mentioned previously.
If you want to run Turso locally you can follow the instructions in the Turso CLI
