Crul is currently available as a MacOS application or a Docker image. Reach out for an enterprise SaaS crul deployment, a self hosted enterprise variant, or to request another distribution.


Start by downloading the crul-vlatest.tar.gz (MacOS Desktop Application) from the Account page. You'll need to sign up for an account if you have not already.


Relax your shoulders, take a deep breath and oh, double click on the downloaded crul-vlatest.tar.gz file to decompress.


Open the decompressed crul application. Crul will prompt itself to move to the /Applications directory if it is not already there. Once approved, crul will reopen.

Crul works well with both API and web content, so this quickstart is split into two paths, one path focused primarily on interacting with a webpage, and the other path focused on interacting with an API.

While both are pretty cool (and you ought to try them both!), you may be drawn to one before the other.
