If you're running Mac OS, Arch, or a Debian-based OS like Ubuntu, then with a good internet connection just run our simple one-liner:
curl https://getsubstrate.io -sSf | bash
This may take several minutes to finish. Once it is done, check that Substrate is properly installed by running
substrate --version. You should see something like this:
$ substrate --version substrate 0.10.0-fdb3a846-x86_64-linux-gnu
If you get that, then you're ready to proceed!
