Installation

Run the following command to install the synth binary:

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSL https://sh.getsynth.com | sh
note

The binary distribution is only compatible with python-3.8. If you happen to be running a different version of Python, you may have to build synth from source.

You can run synth --version to make sure the CLI installed correctly.

Python dependencies

For some classes of generators, Synth makes use of your local Python environment. In particular, you may need to have Python 3 installed and have the Faker package installed. To install Faker with pip:

pip3 install Faker

or take a look at their official documentation.
