Published: 27th of July 2021
Crystal is an exciting sounding language which is: "As slick as Ruby and as fast as C."
In this post I will show you how install the Crystal programming language on Ubuntu 2004.
Code versions used in this post
- Ubuntu - 2004
- Crystal - 1.1.0
First, add the Crystal repository to your apt sources.
echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/crystal/xUbuntu_20.04/ /' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/devel:languages:crystal.list
Next, add the Crystal GPG key.
curl -fsSL https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:languages:crystal/xUbuntu_20.04/Release.key | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/devel_languages_crystal.gpg > /dev/null
With the pre-reqs out of the way, now its time to install Crystal.
sudo apt update -y && sudo apt install crystal -y
Finally, verify the version of Crystal that is installed.
crystal --version # output Crystal 1.1.0 [af095d72d] (2021-07-14) LLVM: 10.0.1 Default target: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
With Crystal now installed, its time to start digging into the language and eco-system.
