Follow one of our quick start guides to start using Telepresence, either with our sample app or in your own environment.

Installing nightly versions of Telepresence

We build and publish the contents of the default branch, release/v2, of Telepresence nightly, Monday through Friday, for macOS (Intel and M1 chips), Linux, and Windows.

The tags are formatted like so: vX.Y.Z-nightly-$gitShortHash.

vX.Y.Z is the most recent release of Telepresence with the patch version (Z) bumped one higher. For example, if our last release was 2.3.4, nightly builds would start with v2.3.5, until a new version of Telepresence is released.

$gitShortHash will be the short hash of the git commit of the build.

Use these URLs to download the most recent nightly build.
