You can download one of the releases found at https://github.com/fsharp-editing/Forge/releases

Alternately you can clone the repo, build the source, and then move the files in your bin folder to a location of your choosing.

On Linux:

One option is to build the project from source and create a symlink.

Choose an installation directory:

export BUILD_DIR=apps
mkdir -p $BUILD_DIR

Clone the repo and build the app:

git clone https://github.com/fsharp-editing/Forge
cd Forge

Choose a location for the executable:

export INSTALL_DIR=~/bin
mkdir -p $INSTALL_DIR

Ensure that the destination directory is on the user's $PATH. For example, in the user's .bashrc, add the following line:

export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

Reload the .bashrc with source or .:

. ~/.bashrc

Create a symlink that points to the script, which runs executable.

ln -s `pwd`/temp/forge.sh $INSTALL_DIR/forge
