From the Binary Releases

Every release of Starboard provides binary releases for a variety of operating systems. These binary versions can be manually downloaded and installed.

  1. Download your desired version
  2. Unpack it (tar -zxvf starboard_darwin_x86_64.tar.gz)
  3. Find the starboard binary in the unpacked directory, and move it to its desired destination (mv starboard_darwin_x86_64/starboard /usr/local/bin/starboard)

From there, you should be able to run Starboard CLI commands: starboard help

kubectl plugin

The Starboard CLI is compatible with kubectl and is intended as kubectl plugin, but it's perfectly fine to run it as a stand-alone executable. If you rename the starboard executable to kubectl-starboard and if it's in your path, you can invoke it using kubectl starboard.
