  • Windows

    • On Windows you need to download and install git for windows.

    • You need a tool to extract *.tar.gz files (tar and gzip).

      For example 7-zip or WinRar.

  • Linux

    • On Linux you need to install curl and git if you don’t have them already

      sudo apt-get install git curl
      sudo yum install git-core curl
  • MacOS

    • On MacOS you only need to download and install git for mac.


  • Download the latest version of devonfw-ide from here and extract it to a folder of your choice.

    (You can find all Releases in Maven Central)

  • Run the setup in this folder (On Windows you can double click on setup.bat)

    A command prompt will open and the setup will start. The setup will ask for a settings URL. In case you do not have a settings URL for your project, you can just press enter to use the default settings.

  • After the setup is finished, you can close the command prompt and open a new one.

  • You are done! You can now use the devon command in your terminal to use the devonfw-ide.
