The fastest way to build applications, share your software, and enjoy doing it.
The fastest and easiest way to install Forge on any operating system is through the use of JBoss Tools or JBoss Developer Studio , where Forge comes pre-installed and makes use of IDE GUI integration. Alternatively, on OSX, you can also use Homebrew to install Forge natively for use on the command-line, via "brew install jboss-forge".
- Ensure that you have already installed a Java 6+ JDK.
- Download and Un-zip Forge (or a recent snapshot build ) into a folder on your hard-disk, this folder will be your FORGE_HOME
- Add '$FORGE_HOME/bin' to your path ( windows , linux , mac osx )
- * Consider installing Git and Maven 3.0+ (both optional)
- Open a command prompt and run 'forge' (if you are on Windows, you will need to run forge.bat unless using a Unix-style terminal)
