This guide walks you through installing the Cortex CLI on a Windows 10 machine using the Linux Subsystem.
The requirement is an x64 system with Windows 10 of Version 1903 or higher, with Build 18362 or higher.
Install and configure the WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) version 2 on your machine following this installation guide.
In our example, we assume the installation of the Ubuntu distribution.
Install and configure the Docker Desktop Engine app to use WSL 2 as its backend by following the setps in the Docker Desktop WSL 2 backend guide.
Run Ubuntu in the terminal on your Windows machine and right-click the window's bar and click on Properties:
In the Font category, set the font to one of the following fonts: SimSun-ExtB (recommended), MS Gothic, or NSimSun. Choosing one of these fonts helps render all Unicode characters correctly. Once selected, click Okay.
Within the Ubuntu terminal, install the Cortex CLI as you would on a Mac/Linux machine:
pip install cortex
# Replace `INSERT_CORTEX_VERSION` with the complete CLI version (e.g. 0.18.1):$ bash -c "$(curl -sS https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cortexlabs/cortex/vINSERT_CORTEX_VERSION/get-cli.sh)"# For example to download CLI version 0.18.1 (Note the "v"):$ bash -c "$(curl -sS https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cortexlabs/cortex/v0.18.1/get-cli.sh)"
Start using the Cortex CLI. The CLI commands are documented here.
