# Installation¶

Scanner has out-of-the-box compatibility with frameworks like OpenCV and Caffe, but the flip side is that installing all of the dependencies can take a long time. The easiest way to get started with Scanner is using our pre-built Docker images, but we also support Building Scanner from source.

On MacOS, you can install Scanner using homebrew with the following commands:

brew tap scanner-research/homebrew-scanner
brew install scanner
