Download and Install Hop

Hop is designed to be as easy and accessible to use as possible.

Getting and starting Hop couldn’t be easier:


Download Hop from the downloads page, where you can choose between a Hop release or a nightly build (Current Development Builds).

Development builds go through rigorous testing before a build is considered successful. Even though they are considered stable, you shouldn’t run the latest nightly build in production without proper testing.


Hop is self contained, all you need is a Java runtime. Hop has been developed and tested with Java 8, but you shouldn’t have any issues running Hop with Java 11. Check the Java docs to download and install a Java runtime for your operating system.


Unzip Hop to a folder of your choice. From that folder, you’ll be able to run the different Hop tools through their corresponding scripts.

Now that you have Hop installed, let’s have a look at all of the Hop tools you have at your disposal.
