To build the project and generate the template assembly use the included Maven wrapper:

./mvnw clean install


To run Nexus Repository, after building, unzip the assembly and start the server:

unzip -d target assemblies/nexus-base-template/target/nexus-base-template-*.zip
./target/nexus-base-template-*/bin/nexus console

The nexus-base-template assembly is used as the basis for the official Sonatype Nexus distributions.
