For Developers

tons is a python package. All UIs (tons, tons-interactive, tons-gui) are included in the same package.

Use pip (python package manager) to install it

$ mkdir ~/my-ton-workdir/ && cd ~/my-ton-workdir/
$ python3 -m venv venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
$ pip install tons
$ tons-interactive
[?] Pick command: Keystores
> Keystores


If you use an executable file, just download newer version from the releases page and replace current one.

For developers, to update tons with pip, run the following command

$ pip install -U tons
