If not already installed, install Java: https://adoptopenjdk.net/
curl -s https://get.nextflow.io | bash
This command will create a
nextflow executable in the current directory. To simplify usage, consider moving this executable to a directory that is available on
$PATH. One common place for this is a
bin/ directory in your home folder:
mkdir -p ~/bin # Creates a bin directory in the home folder mv nextflow ~/bin # Moves nextflow to that directory echo 'export PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc # Make the directory accessible on $PATH source ~/.bashrc # Reload the shell configuration
Verify that Nextflow is accessible by going to your home directory (
cd ~) and typing
nextflow on the command line.
Install Docker. Ensure that the Docker engine is running by typing
docker images. If the engine is running, it should return a (possibly empty) list of container images currently downloaded to your system.
