Download and Install


Fig is currently in private beta. You can sign up to Fig's waitlist here. We are onboarding new users in batches.

We expect to open up Fig for popular consumption in August.


1. Drag Fig into Applications

Open the .dmg file and drag the Fig file into Applications

2. Add the Fig CLI

Open Fig from the applications folder. You can do this from the applications folder, Spotlight, or the launchpad.

Do not open Fig from the icon you saw in step 1.

3. Welcome

4. Add CLI tool

This installs the Fig CLI via a symlink.

5. Enable Accessibility Permission

Fig uses Accessibility permissions to do its window management. Make sure the checkbox next to Fig is checked. You might have to click the lock in the bottom left.

Note: If the Fig sidebar doesn't display on load (e.g. after an update), chances are there is a problem with accessibility permissions. go to:

Apple Icon (in top left of screen)System Preference → Security & Privacy → Accessibility

  • If Fig is unchecked: check it.

  • If Fig is checked: uncheck it, then check it again

6. Login

You can login to Fig with Gmail or your email. We suggest you use your work email to make it easy to share internal scripts, runbooks, and CLIs.

7. Get Started

If everything goes well, you should see a Terminal pop open with a sidebar appended to the right. You can click Start to begin installing apps and addings items to your sidebar.

You can access the screen it takes you to any time with fig home

Note: Fig works with any Terminal. Open up iTerm or Kitty!

8. Install Apps and Customize your Sidebar

fig home is where you go to install apps and customize your sidebar. You can learn more about each here:
