If you want to use Fisher in a new machine you need to install it. Fisher is written in Rust, and it's available as a single binary you can drop into your path.
Unfortunately, no precompiled packages for any Linux distribution are available yet. In the future they might become available.
Official precompiled binaries are available from
can download the latest version from it and extract the binary contained in it
/usr/local/bin). There are also GPG signatures
available if you want to check them.
Install from source
If you want to build Fisher from source, you need to have the Rust 1.17 (or greater) toolchain installed on the target machine. Keep in mind this might take a while to complete.
The easiest way to build from source is to build the package uploaded in the Rust's package registry, crates.io:
$ cargo install fisher
Instead, if you want to compile directly from the source code you need to fetch the code from the git repository, and then build it with Cargo.
$ git clone https://github.com/pietroalbini/fisher $ cd fisher $ cargo build --release
The binary will be available in
Starting Fisher at boot time
If you want to start Fisher at boot, you should create a new systemd service
(if your distribution uses systemd as the init). Place the following file in
[Unit] Description=The Fisher webhooks catcher [Service] ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/fisher /srv/webhooks/config.toml ExecReload=/bin/kill -USR1 $MAINPID User=fisher Group=fisher PrivateTmp=yes [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
This service assumes your system is configured this way:
- The Fisher binary is located in
- The configuration file is located in
- Fisher is executed by the
If those things don't match your server configuration, you must change them in the service file. Then, you can manage Fisher like every other systemd service:
$ systemctl start fisher $ systemctl stop fisher $ systemctl restart fisher $ systemctl reload fisher $ systemctl status fisher
