Installing Hub with ZIP Distribution


Hub ZIP is a cross-platform distribution. It allows installing and running Hub on MS Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

The installation procedures for all operation systems are similar. The major difference between installing Hub is the two scripts hub.bat for MS Windows and for Linux and Mac OS, and the tool which you use to start the installation script:

  • MS Windows — Command line tool
  • Linux — Command line console
  • OS X — Terminal
