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

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.

Prerequisites

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.

Install

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.
