Arcanist installer for Windows
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Instructions to install Arcanist in Windows exist, but there should be a arcanist installer (e.g. .exe or .msi) for Windows.

See also T133: Arcanist isn't packaged in Fedora, Debian, or Ubuntu, which is the same thing for GNU/Linux.

Filed upstream at . See also the general upstream task ( for packaging, which is stated to be low-priority for them, for various reasons including upstream's lack of experience with packaging and Phabricator's rate of change.



Event Timeline

flimport raised the priority of this task from to Medium.Sep 12 2014, 1:34 AM
flimport set Reference to fl280.
Qgil lowered the priority of this task from Medium to Lowest.Oct 10 2014, 8:45 AM
Qgil added a project: Gerrit-Migration.
Qgil set Security to None.

These instructions are pretty straight forward and comparable to what we have for git-review right now. I don't think having a .exe or .msi for arcanist on Windows is a blocker for migration (though it's still a valid lowest prio task in Differential and a valid task upstream).

From @greg link :

git clone
git clone

Then set %PATH%=%PATH%;arcanist/bin/

To upgrade: arc upgrade

It is straightforward, no need for an .msi installer.
