Installing DataBlazer on Linux or macOS

To install DataBlazer on a Linux system or macOS:
  1. Download the appropriate version of DataBlazer from the 1010data web site.
    1. DataBlazer for 64-bit Linux: https://www2.1010data.com/downloads/tools/datablazer/lin/db64.tar.gz
    2. DataBlazer for macOS: https://www2.1010data.com/downloads/tools/datablazer/osx/db.tar.gz
    The file is downloaded automatically.
  2. Unzip the file.
    The db directory contains the files tenup, tendo, and datahaul, and a licenses subdirectory.
  3. Copy tenup, tendo and datahaul to your/usr/local/bin directory. For this operation, you will need administrative access on your computer.
  4. You can also add the directory where tenup, tendo, and datahaul is stored to your $PATH variable. This method doesn't require you to have administrative access.
    1. Go to your home directory with the following command: $cd ~
    2. Open your bash profile with the following command: $vim .bash_profile
      Note: vim is just one text editor that is available in a standard bash installation. If you're not familiar with vim, you can use your favorite text editor instead.
    3. Add the following command to the next empty line of the file:
      export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/[CURRENT DATABLAZER DIRECTORY]"
    4. Save the changes to your file.
      You can now invoke tenup, tendo, and datahaul from any directory on your computer.
      Note: You may have to close your terminal and re-open it before the changes to your $PATH take effect.
  5. (Optional) If you wish to use single sign-on (SSO) to log in to the 1010data Insights Platform with DataBlazer, copy the sso_login binary file to any directory you have on the PATH.
    Check your PATH environment variable for a list of directories by typing echo $PATH on the command line.
