|Getting Started with Pivotal GemFire / Installing Pivotal GemFire|
If your operating system is Mac OSX, you can install Pivotal GemFire from a Homebrew package.
$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"
$ brew tap pivotal/tap && brew install gemfire
This starts the install process, resolves dependencies, and displays the packages it will install. The GemFire software is installed into the /usr/local/Cellar/gemfire/version directory where version corresponds to the latest available version of GemFire. Note that Homebrew installs the executables such as gfsh in the /usr/local/Cellar/gemfire/version/bin directory and creates symbolic links to the GemFire executables in /usr/local/bin. All other GemFire product files including SampleCode and HTTP module installers are installed in /usr/local/Cellar/gemfire/version/libexec.
# gfsh v7.0.2If you want more detailed version information such as the date of the build, build number and JDK version being used, type gfsh version --full.
