k6 has packages for Linux, Mac, and Windows. Alternatively, you can use a Docker container or a standalone binary.



sudo gpg -k
sudo gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring /usr/share/keyrings/k6-archive-keyring.gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys C5AD17C747E3415A3642D57D77C6C491D6AC1D69
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/k6-archive-keyring.gpg] stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/k6.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install k6


Using dnf (or yum on older versions):

sudo dnf install
sudo dnf install k6


Using Homebrew:

brew install k6


If you use the Chocolatey package manager you can install the unofficial k6 package with:

choco install k6

If you use the Windows Package Manager, install the official packages from the k6 manifests (created by the community):

winget install k6 --source winget

Alternatively, you can download and run the latest official installer.


docker pull grafana/k6

We also have a separate image you can use with chromium installed to run k6 browser tests.

docker pull grafana/k6:master-with-browser

Download the k6 binary

Our GitHub Releases page has a standalone binary for all platforms. After downloading and extracting the archive for your platform, place the k6 or k6.exe binary in your PATH to run k6 from any location.

Using k6 extensions

If you use one or more k6 extensions, you need a k6 binary built with your desired extensions. Head to the bundle builder page to get started.
