Installation

Regardless of where you place the box binary, the first time you execute it, a .CommandBox folder will be created in your user's home directory and CommandBox will be extracted into that location. If you delete this directory, it will be replaced the next time the CommandBox executable is run.

You can specify a different install location by adding -commandbox_home=E:\CommandBox when you run the box binary.

To avoid specifying the commandbox_home variable every time you can create a file called commandbox.properties (case sensitive) in the same directory as the binary, and fill it with this line:

commandbox_home=E:\\CommandBox

Windows

Unzip the executable box.exe and just double click on it to open the shell. When you are finished running commands, you can just close the window, or type exit.

Hint You can make the box.exe available in any Windows terminal by adding its location to the PATH system environment variable. See http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm

Mac/ *Unix

Homebrew (Mac)

Homebrew is a great Mac package manager, it can easily install and keep your CommandBox installation up to date (even binary releases), just run the following for stable releases:

brew install commandbox

To stay with current bleeding edge releases use the following:

brew tap ortus-solutions/boxtap
brew tap-pin ortus-solutions/boxtap
brew install --devel commandbox

Then run the box binary to begin the one-time unpacking process.

Versions will be installed in /usr/local/Cellar/commandbox. To switch between versions, simply use brew switch commandbox [version number]

Manual Installation

Unzip the binary box and just double click on it to open the shell terminal. When you are finished running commands, you can just close the window, or type exit.

Hint You can place the binary in your /usr/bin directory so it can be available system-wide via the box command in any terminal window.
