There are a few ways you can obtain a copy of FusionCMS. All of the resources listed below will download the latest stable release of FusionCMS.
First, download the FusionCMS CLI using Composer:
composer global require fusioncms/cli
Make sure to place Composer's system-wide vendor bin directory in your
$PATH so the fusion executable can be located by your system. This directory exists in different locations based on your operating system; however, some common locations include:
- GNU / Linux Distributions:
You could also find the composer's global installation path by running
composer global about and looking up from the first line.
Once installed, the
fusion new command will create a fresh FusionCMS installation in the directory you specify. For instance,
fusion new blog will create a directory named
blog containing a fresh FusionCMS installation with all of FusionCMS' dependencies already installed:
fusion new blog
Alternatively, you may also use Composer to create new projects using the latest stable version of FusionCMS by issuing the
create-project command. This is the equivalent of doing a git clone/svn checkout followed by a
composer create-project --prefer-dist --stability=dev fusioncms/fusioncms example
