Install command line tool (CLI)

The glooctl command line provides useful functions to install, configure, and debug Gloo Edge, though it is not required to use Gloo Edge.

You can verify the glooctl CLI is installed and running correctly by executing the command:

glooctl version

The command returns your client version and a missing server version (we have not installed Gloo Edge yet!):

Client: {"version":"1.2.3"}
Server: version undefined, could not find any version of gloo running
