Installation on Mac OS X

  1. The Lure distribution for Mac OS X is distributed as a compressed tar file (tar.gz).
  2. After uncompressing and extracting the tar file use the Finder and navigate to the Downloads folder.
  3. Move the folder “lure” that appears within the Downloads folder to the Applications folder by dragging it within the Finder.
  4. Enter your password if prompted.
  5. Open the Launchpad and verify that the program LureStage appears in it.

Optionally, if you are planning on executing Lure from the command line do the following:

  1. Create symbolic links for the executables “lure” and “lureStage” within the /usr/bin folder
    1. From a terminal window execute: sudo /Applications/lure/install.sh
    2. Enter your password if prompted.
    3. This will create symbolic links for the “lure” and “lureStage” executables and also move the lure folder and contents to the “Applications” folder if it is not there already.
    4. If you prefer you can create the symbolic links manually following the commands in the “install.sh” script file.
  2. Test the links by executing the command lure and “lureStage” from a terminal window (not the window where sudo /Applications/lure/install.sh was executed).

Post Installation Tasks

  1. Start Lure Stage from the Launchpad . You will be prompted to specify a workspace folder. This is the default folder where Lure projects will be created.
  2. Install additional Eclipse based plug-ins.
    1. Consider installing plug-ins to integrate with version control systems. For example Subclipse is an Eclipse based plug-in for Subversion. (Lure Stage is based on Eclipse 3.7.)
    2. In order to install additional plug-ins you have to run Lure Stage with root privileges, e.g.: sudo /Applications/lure/LureStage.app/Contents/MacOS/LureStage
    3. Enter your password if prompted.

Uninstalling Lure on Mac OS X

  1. Using the Finder navigate to the Applications folder.
  2. Drag the folder “lure” to the Trash icon.
  3. Drag the Lure icon in the Dock to the Trash icon.
