This is the super-short getting started guide that should enable you to get something up and running in less than three minutes (excluding download times).


Install stackablectl, the Stackable CLI utility.

On Linux (Windows and MacOS instructions below):

$ curl -L -o stackablectl https://github.com/stackabletech/stackablectl/releases/latest/download/stackablectl-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

and mark it as executable:

$ chmod +x stackablectl
Instruction for Windows and MacOS

Download stackablectl-x86_64-pc-windows-gnu.exe (for Windows) or stackablectl-x86_64-apple-darwin (Mac OS Intel) or stackablectl-aarch64-apple-darwin (MacOS ARM) from the latest release and save it as stackablectl.

For windows, you can simply execute it. For MacOS mark it as executable:

$ chmod +x stackablectl

If you want to execute it from anywhere in your system, you need to add it to the system PATH.

If macOS denies the execution of stackablectl go to SettingsSecurity & PrivacyGeneral. Here you will see a pop up asking if you want to allow access for stackablectl. You must allow access.

Install the Taxi data demo

The trino-taxi-data Demo installs the latest Stackable platform release and a visualization of New York City Taxi Data using Trino and Superset:

./stackablectl demo install trino-taxi-data
Learn more about this demo in the demo docs: trino-taxi-data


To list the installed installed Stackable services run the following command:

./stackablectl services list --all-namespaces

It will output something like:

 PRODUCT   NAME         NAMESPACE  ENDPOINTS                                     EXTRA INFOS

 hive      hive         default    hive      

 opa       opa          default    http      

 superset  superset     default    external-superset   Admin user: admin, password: adminadmin

 trino     trino        default    coordinator-http

                                   console-http   Admin user: admin, password: adminadmin

To connect to Superset, open the listed endpoint in your browser and log in with the username admin and the password adminadmin.
