This article is for those looking for a detailed and straightforward guide on installing eksctl on macOS.

eksctl is a command-line utility developed in Go, designed for easy creation of clusters in Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). It leverages AWS CloudFormation to perform its tasks.

In this guide, we will consider the case when you already have the Homebrew package manager installed.

To install Homebrew, you can use the command:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

This guide covers installation using the terminal emulator iTerm2.

We connect the repository with formulas for Homebrew using the command:

brew tap weaveworks/tap

Run the eksctl installation with the command:

brew install weaveworks/tap/eksctl
