Installing conscript 

Set up environment variables 

Depending on your OS the format might be different, but set up the following three environment variables.

export CONSCRIPT_HOME="$HOME/.conscript"
export CONSCRIPT_OPTS="-XX:MaxPermSize=512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8"
  • CONSCRIPT_HOME is where Conscript will download various files.
  • CONSCRIPT_OPTS is JVM arguments passed on to the apps that you installed using Conscript.
  • By default Conscript will create the launching script for the apps in $CONSCRIPT_HOME/bin. Optionally you can change this location using $CONSCRIPT_BIN for example to ~/bin/
  • PATH is your OS’s path variable. Add $CONSCRIPT_HOME/bin or $CONSCRIPT_BIN to the path.

There are three methods of installation available

Cross platform 

Download the conscript runnable jar. On most OSes you can run it by double-clicking, but if that doesn’t work you can also run it from the command line.

$ java -jar conscript_2.11-0.5.8-proguard.jar

A “splash screen” will appear during installation. Don’t close it until you see a message that cs was installed, or that something went wrong.

Linux, Mac 

If you prefer, you can install conscript by piping this shell script.

wget -O - | sh


If you prefer, you can download the PowerShell script and run it.
