There are a few ways to install FVM, and we are working on other ways to make it even simpler.
We recommend install Flutter SDK globally using the official installation guide here (opens in a new tab). This will be the main version of Flutter across your machine.
Use FVM to manage the Flutter SDK version for your projects.
You can download the standalone packages from the GitHub repo here (opens in a new tab).
If you use the Homebrew package manager (opens in a new tab) for Mac OS X, you can install FVM by running
brew tap leoafarias/fvm
brew install fvm
brew uninstall fvm
brew untap leoafarias/fvm
You are able to also install FVM as a pub package (opens in a new tab).
However if you plan on using FVM to manage your global Flutter install we recommend installing as a standalone.
This is not recommended if you plan on using FVM to manage your global Flutter install.
dart pub global activate fvm
