Install Guise CLI

Below find the instructions for installing and running Guise corresponding to your computer system. When you are finished, you can verify your installation by typing guise --version.

Windows Installation

Guise CLI comes with a standalone guise.exe file you can place in any directory, preferably on your path.

If Java is correctly installed and the guise.exe file can be found on the path, you can run Guise CLI by simply typing guise and pressing Enter.

Linux Installation

Guise CLI comes with an executable JAR file which you can either run directly using Java, or invoke using the included guise shell script.

If Java is correctly installed and the guise file can be found on the path, you can run Guise CLI by simply typing guise and pressing Enter.

Other System Installation

Because Guise is based on Java, it can be run directly from the executable JAR file on any system that supports the required version of Java. You do not need to perform this installation if you already installed Guise CLI for your specific system above.

If Java is correctly installed, you can run Guise CLI via the java -jar command:

java -jar /path/to/guise-cli-x.x.x/bin/guise-cli-x.x.x-exe.jar
