System Requirements

journal-cli works on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. The only hard dependency is the latest version of PowerShell.

For Windows users, this is a no-brainer. If you're using anything less than the latest version of PowerShell, you should upgrade immediately. And while you're at it, make sure you're also using the new Windows Terminal. It's fantastic!

Mac and Linux users, on the other hand, might be reluctant to try a different shell simply to take advantage of journal-cli. I get it. This tool may not be for you. However, if you're willing to learn a few new tricks, popping in and out of a PowerShell session to use journal-cli may not be as painful as you imagine. Just run pwsh to start a session, run your journal-cli commands, then exit to return to your shell of choice. Easy! Alternatively, you can use another, less cool cli journaling tool. ;)
