Manual installation

Step 1: Download

Download the TaskFalcon binary from the download page.

Step 2: Install

Currently, there is no installer provided with TaskFalcon. Just unzip the downloaded file and you’re good to go.

Since TaskFalcon is a command line utility, you might want to put it in your path, so you don’t have to type the whole path to the TaskFalcon executable every time you want to run TaskFalcon.
