Getting Started

A step-by-step of how to get Warp onto your machine and setup.
Mac-Only: Please note that Warp is currently supported on Mac only. We plan on adding support for Web (WASM), Linux, and Windows in this order. You can subscribe here if you want to be notified when we build for these platforms.

Installing Warp

Onboarding

Logging into Warp

Issues with login? Check out our login troubleshooting page.
During our closed beta, we require a login to interact with you, get your feedback, and focus on improving the app. After installing Warp for the first time, you will be prompted to log in with GitHub, Google, or via an email link.
If you log in with Google or GitHub, we only get access to the associated email address. If you want to learn more, read our approach to privacy.
Opening the app is the only time you need an active Internet connection. Otherwise, Warp is a fully-native, local app that runs fine with no internet connection (although you will lose access to some of our cooler features).

Onboarding Survey

Why do we ask these? Understanding how you use the terminal helps us improve the product and prioritize the right features.
For example, we might find that backend engineers spend more time with multiple terminal tabs open, or engineers at large companies spend more time using CLIs.
As part of our beta, we ask a few questions within the app after you sign up.
The survey is optional - you can skip all questions if you’d like.

Customize Warp

Warp has many Appearance and Feature settings you can configure. Please see the navigation sidebar to learn more!
