    [forge-dev] Install Forge from CURL (FORGE-1896)

    Devanshu Singh Newbie

      Hello!

       

      I’ve been working on the Issue:Install Forge from CURL

      (https://issues.jboss.org/browse/FORGE-1896)

       

       

      While writing the script I found that the installer extracts to the name

      :”forge-distribution-2.12.1.Final”. Meanwhile reading the installation

      documents on the forge website(http://forge.jboss.org/document/installation),

      I found that the install location suggested is “~/forge/“ (maintaining the

      bin folder directly inside this).

      Should I rename the extracted zip archive to “forge” inside the script ? or

      should I modify the path variable?

      Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere or if there is an alternate way to

      handle this. (This is my first outing with open source!).

          Hi Devanshu,

           

          I think that the documentation seems a bit confusing. Actually, you can

          extract Forge to whatever directory you like. Then you should just add that

          directory to your path.

           

          IMHO, the docu would sound a bit more clear if the sentence

           

          *On Unix based operating systems, this typically means editing your

          ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile; you will need to the following entries:*

           

          was changed to something like:

           

          *On Unix based operating systems, this typically means editing your

          ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile. Suppose you have extracted Forge under ~/forge

          directory. Then you will need to add the following entries:*

           

          And still the question remains: if you extract directly the zip under

          ~/forge, then your FORGE_HOME should be (as you noticed)

          ~/forge/forge-distribution-2.12.1.Final. So even the above explanation is

          not the best...

           

          Lincoln, George, what do you think?

           

          Cheers,

          Ivan

            Hey Ivan,

             

            I think your update makes more sense. Our current docs don't do a very good

            job of explaining that this is just an example, and is also optional.
