Insomnia is available on macOS, Windows, and Linux. If you haven’t already downloaded Insomnia, visit the Download Page.
Note: The minimum macOS version supported is macOS 10.12 Sierra.
Get Insomnia on macOS through a download, or by using Brew.
Download and double-click the disk image. When prompted, drag Insomnia to your Applications folder. This ensures future updates can be installed correctly.
macOS users can also install Insomnia using Brew Cask via the Insomnia package:
brew install --cask insomnia
Get Insomnia on Windows through a download or by downloading our portable version.
The Windows application is a generic installer .exe. Double click the installer file to install Insomnia in your existing filesystem. This option is recommended, as it will enable automatic app updates.
There is also a portable version that can be run in place, and without any installation.
Uninstall on Windows
To uninstall Insomnia from a Windows computer, go to the settings menu on Windows and select Apps.
From the Add/Remove Programs section, click on the app and select to uninstall.
Insomnia runs on common Linux distributions.
Ubuntu and Debian
The Debian package apt repository can be added and installed using apt-get.
# Add to sources
echo "deb [trusted=yes arch=amd64] https://download.konghq.com/insomnia-ubuntu/ default all" \
| sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/insomnia.list
# Refresh repository sources and install Insomnia
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install insomnia
To roll back to a previous Insomnia version, download the version from GitHub Releases. This process is only intended for debugging and emergencies, as the app will try to update itself after it launches.
