Installing Gradle manually


Step 1. Download the latest Gradle distribution

The current Gradle release is version 3.5, released on 10 Apr 2017. The distribution zip file comes in two flavors:

Binary-only
Complete (with docs and sources)

If in doubt, choose the binary-only version and browse docs and sources online.

Need to work with an older version? See the releases page.
Step 2. Unpack the distribution
Linux & MacOS users

Unzip the distribution zip file in the directory of your choosing, e.g.:

$ mkdir /opt/gradle
$ unzip -d /opt/gradle gradle-3.5-bin.zip
$ ls /opt/gradle/gradle-3.5


LICENSE NOTICE bin getting-started.html init.d lib media

Microsoft Windows users

Create a new directory C:\Gradle with File Explorer.
Open a second File Explorer window and go to the directory where the Gradle distribution was downloaded. Double-click the ZIP archive to expose the content. Drag the content folder gradle-3.5 to your newly created C:\Gradle folder.

Alternatively you can unpack the Gradle distribution ZIP into C:\Gradle using an archiver tool of your choice.
Step 3. Configure your system environment
Linux & MacOS users

Configure your PATH environment variable to include the bin directory of the unzipped distribution, e.g.:

$ export PATH=$PATH:/opt/gradle/gradle-3.5/bin

Microsoft Windows users

In File Explorer right-click on the This PC (or Computer) icon, then click Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Environmental Variables.

Under System Variables select Path, then click Edit. Add an entry for C:\Gradle\gradle-3.5\bin. Click OK to save.
Step 4. Verify your installation

Open a console (or a Windows command prompt) and run gradle -v to run gradle and display the version, e.g.:

$ gradle -v
