Install SBFS automatically

Overview

Install SBFS automatically for Linux and macOS.

Conversely, advanced users can also install SBFS manually.

Procedure


###Linux

Perform an automated installation with the following command:

curl https://igor.sbgenomics.com/downloads/sbfs/install.sh -sSf | sudo sh

During the installation, the script will:

  1. Check if FUSE is installed.
  2. Download the SBFS binary.
  3. Install the SBFS binary (change file access permissions and move the SBFS binary to /usr/local/bin).
  4. Enable bash completion for SBFS. (Note that this only works with bash completion version 4, which should be previously installed and enabled.)
  5. Add man pages for SBFS.

During the procedure you will see information on whether each of the steps were successful or not. Also, the script will inform you if SBFS has been successfully installed.

macOS

Prerequisite

Before installing the SBFS on macOS, please install macFUSE, a software interface which allows non-privileged users to create their own file systems without editing the kernel code.
