# Install the Aptos CLI

The Aptos command line interface (CLI) helps you develop apps, debug issues, and operate nodes. See Use Aptos CLI for Configuration for all possible uses.

You may install the Aptos CLI in any of these ways:

These methods are recommended only if you have issues with the above methods:

• Download the prebuilt Aptos CLI binaries - Ensures you get a stable version of the Aptos CLI built on a regular cadence from the main upstream development branch.
• Build the Aptos CLI from source code - Allows you to build from any of the Aptos branches, including devnet, testnet, mainnet, and the latest code in the main upstream development branch.

## (Optional) Installing the Move Prover​

Optionally, you can install the Move Prover; however, most users will not need it and it is not supported on all platforms.
