If you have Node.js and npm installed, you can install TallyArbiter as a CLI and run it from the command line or terminal using

npm install --global tallyarbiter

or in short: npm i -g tallyarbiter

Depending on your OS, you may need to run the command as root using the prefix "sudo".

sudo npm install --global tallyarbiter

Then, start it by typing tallyarbiter.


To install the latest version, just run the same command from above (npm i -g tallyarbiter) again.

Be sure to back up or save your config file!
