The macOS quickstart is to paste the below into a terminal and execute it.

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

If you are looking to customize your install then advanced usage if for you.


The installation script has various options but you will need to download the script and invoke it directly.

# save the script
curl -fsSL -o

# make it executable
chmod +x ./

# get usage info
bash --help

# example advanced invocation
# note you will need to change these values to ones that make sense for you
# consult the usage and notes below for more into
bash \
  --arch=arm64 \
  --dest=/Users/pirog/bin \
  --fat \
  --no-setup \
  --os=macos \
  --version=3.21.2 \

  [--no-setup] \
  [--os <os>] \

  • --arch <x64|arm64>: Specifies the architecture to install (x64 or arm64). Defaults to the system architecture.
  • --debug: Enables debug output.
  • --dest <path>: Specifies the destination path for installation. Defaults to /usr/local/bin.
  • --fat: Download the fat v3 Lando binary that comes with official plugins built-in.
  • --no-setup: Skips running Lando's built-in setup script.
  • --version <version>: Specifies the version of Lando to install. Defaults to stable.
  • --help: Displays the help message.
  • --yes: Skips all interactive prompts and installs with defaults

Some notes on advanced usage:

  • If you want to install without the sudo password requirement then set --dest to a location to which your user has write permission. Note that you may still need sudo for downstream setup tasks eg if you need to install Docker Desktop.
  • If you want to customize the behavior of lando setup use --no-setup and then manually invoke lando setup after install is complete.
  • If you run in a non-tty environment eg GitHub Actions then --yes will be assumed
  • If you use --yes it is equivalent to setting NONINTERACTIVE=1
