Subo is the command-line tool for working with the Suborbital Extension Engine (SE2). Subo is used to build SE2 plugins, generate new projects and config files, and is also our mascot 🐼.
You do not need to install language-specific tools to get started with SE2 and Subo! A Docker toolchain is supported (see below) that can build your SE2 plugins without needing to install language toolchains.
If you’re on Mac (M1 or Intel), the easiest way to install is via
brew tap suborbital/subo
brew install subo
If you use Linux or otherwise prefer to build from source, simply clone this repository or download a source code release archive and run:
This will install
subo into your GOPATH (
$HOME/go/bin/subo by default) which you may need to add to your shell’s
Subo does not have official support for Windows.
Verify subo was installed:
If you installed Subo through Homebrew, run the command below to upgrade:
brew upgrade subo
If you installed Subo from source, you can upgrade by building/installing the new binary on top of the old one.
This repo contains builders for the various languages supported by SE2 plugins. A builder is a Docker image that can build SE2 plugins into Wasm plugins, and is used internally by
subo to build your code.
