Installing Nyssa

Setting up Nyssa is a very straight forward process that involves three easy steps.

  1. Download the Nyssa package manager from the official Nyssa website or from the Github repository releases page. It is recommended to download from the Nyssa website as the website will only have the most stable release for download.
  2. Extract the downloaded .zip file to a choice location on your device.
  3. Add the location of the extracted package to your system environment path to make the nyssa command available system-wide.

Various operating systems provides different mechanisms for adding a path to the environment so the steps may vary for your specific operating system.

Here's a few links for different operating systems showing how to do this.
