3.3.1 Installing MySQL Shell

This section describes how to download, install, and start MySQL Shell, which is an interactive JavaScript, Python, or SQL interface supporting development and administration for the MySQL Server. MySQL Shell is a component of MySQL 5.7.12 or higher that you can install separately.

Requirements

MySQL Shell is available on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and OS X for 64-bit platforms. MySQL Shell requires that the built-in X Plugin be active for MySQL 5.7.12 or higher. You can install the server plugin before or after you install MySQL Shell. For instructions, see Installing the X Plugin.
