First, clone the code:

git clone

You can use the following to check the integrity of the latest release:

/usr/bin/git -C hydra verify-commit HEAD

Note that /usr/bin/git is called to avoid any other git wrappers or aliases you might have available on your shell.

There are some ways you can install the suite in your system:

  • Adding the whole hydra folder into your PATH.
  • By symlinking hydra, hydractl and optionally hydras into your ~/bin folder.
  • By doing a system-wide install at /usr/local simply running
./hydractl install
