How do I do a simple update?

Easy question, how do I do a simple update? Do I just re-run the installation script? I don’t see anything like atuin update which would be cool.

Hey! Welcome to the forum

If you installed Atuin with the install script, then re-running it will work

See: Installation | Atuin Docs

The install script tries to use the system package manager wherever it can. Because of that, we don’t manage our own binary install - so something like atuin update can’t work.

I may change that in the future, but it’s a pretty large change and will be controversial for some people. So we will always need to support both paths

Is this still true? I now see there is an atuin-update binary in $HOME/.atuin/bin/. Is this a recent change? I could not find it mentioned anywhere in the documentation.

PS: is appending . "$HOME/.atuin/bin/env" to the .zshenv also a recent change? I don’t think it was there before, but I may be wrong. In any case, I think it should be notified during installation (maybe it already is and I missed it?) or interactively asked to the user whether they accept this change to their ~/.zshenv.
