Install Copilot

You can install AWS Copilot through Homebrew or by downloading the binaries directly.

Homebrew 🍻

brew install aws/tap/copilot-cli
Are you using Rosetta on a Mac machine with Apple silicon?

If your homebrew was installed with Rosetta, then the brew install will install the amd64 build. If this is not what you want, please either reinstall homebrew without Rosetta, or use the manual installation option below.
