C# Packages

We have provided NuGet packages for Apache Arrow C#:

Other Installers

For convenience, we also provide packages through several package managers. Many of them are provided as binary, built from the source release. As the Apache Arrow PMC has not explicitly voted on these packages, they are technically considered unofficial releases.

C++ and Python Conda Packages

Binary conda packages are on conda-forge for Linux, macOS, and Windows for the following versions:

Install them with:

conda install arrow-cpp=4.0.* -c conda-forge
conda install pyarrow=4.0.* -c conda-forge
conda install r-arrow=4.0.* -c conda-forge

C++ and GLib (C) Packages on Homebrew

On macOS, you can install the C++ library using Homebrew:

brew install apache-arrow

and GLib (C) package with:

brew install apache-arrow-glib

C++ and GLib (C) Packages for MSYS2

The MSYS2 packages include Apache Arrow C++ and GLib (C) package. You can install the package by pacman.

64-bit version:

pacman -S --noconfirm mingw-w64-x86_64-arrow

32-bit version:

pacman -S --noconfirm mingw-w64-i686-arrow

C++ Package on vcpkg

You can download and install Apache Arrow C++ using the vcpkg dependency manager:
