    Download for GNU/Linux 🐧 or MacOS 🍎

    The default download location is /usr/local/bin, but you can change it in the command to use a different location. However, make sure the location is added to your PATH environment variable for easy accessibility.

    You can download it with the following command:
    $ curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aandrew-me/tgpt/main/install | bash -s /usr/local/bin

    If you are using Arch Linux, you can install the AUR package with paru:

    $ paru -S tgpt-bin

    Or with yay:

    $ yay -S tgpt-bin

    Install with Go

    You need to add the Go install directory to your system’s shell path.

    $ go install github.com/aandrew-me/tgpt/v2@latest

    Updating ⬆️

    If you installed the program with the installation script, you may update it with

    $ tgpt -u

    It may require admin privileges.



    Http Proxy [ http://ip:port ]
    Http Auth [ http://user:pass@ip:port ]
    Socks5 Proxy [ socks5://ip:port ]
    Socks5 Auth [ socks5://user:pass@ip:port ]

    If you want to use a proxy, create proxy.txt file in the same directory from where you are executing the file and write your proxy configuration there.


    From Release

    You can download the executable for your operating system, rename it to tgpt (or any other desired name), and then execute it by typing ./tgpt while in that directory. Alternatively, you can add it to your PATH environmental variable and then execute it by simply typing tgpt.


    If you installed with the install script, you can execute the following command to remove the tgpt executable

    $ sudo rm $(which tgpt)

    Configuration file is usually located in ~/.config/tgpt on GNU/Linux Systems and in "Library/Application Support/tgpt" on MacOS
