Or you can download the binary from the releases page and add to your $PATH. DEB and RPM packages are also available. The task_checksums.txt file contains the sha256 checksum for each file.


If you're on macOS and have Homebrew installed, getting Task is as simple as running:

brew install go-task/tap/go-task


Task is available for Snapcraft, but keep in mind that your Linux distribution should allow classic confinement for Snaps to Task work right:

sudo snap install task


If you're on Windows and have Scoop installed, use extras bucket to install Task like:

scoop bucket add extras
scoop install task

This installation method is community owned. After a new release of Task, it may take some time until it's available on Scoop.


Task now uses Go Modules, which means you may have trouble compiling it on older Go versions.

For CI environments we recommend using the Install Script instead, which is faster and more stable, since it'll just download the latest released binary, instead of compiling the edge (master branch) version.

Installing in your $GOPATH:

go get -u -v

Installing in another directory:

git clone
cd task

# compiling binary to $GOPATH/bin
go install -v

# compiling it to another location
# use -o ./task.exe on Windows
go build -v -o ./task ./cmd/task

Both methods requires having the Go environment properly setup locally.

Install script

We also have a install script, which is very useful on scenarios like CIs. Many thanks to godownloader for allowing easily generating this script.

curl -sL | sh

This method will download the binary on the local ./bin directory by default.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
