- Install the requisites. This could be an involved process because you could be potentially install a lot of stuff but at minimum just need Java.
- Download the binaries for groovy. If your Linux distro has a repo like Debian, I don't recommend using it because it not the latest.
- Do a bit of file handling and doing a bunch of sym links to the binaries.
- Configure your bash shell for groovy. Just like step 3, not fun and just plain tedious.
Just do this to install GVM:
curl -s get.gvmtool.net | bash
And then do this to install Groovy.
gvm install groovy
That should install the latest version of groovy and we're off and running with groovy development.
