Installing PCF Dev on Mac OS X
Page last updated:
This topic describes how to install PCF Dev on Mac OS X.
PCF Dev uses the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) to push and scale apps.
Download the cf CLI for Mac OS X (64 bit). If you previously used the cf CLI v5 Ruby gem, you must uninstall the gem first.
In the installer wizard, click Continue.
Select an install destination and click Continue.
When prompted, click Install.
To verify your installation, open a terminal window and enter
cf. If your installation was successful, the cf CLI help listing appears.
- Download the latest version of PCF Dev from the Pivotal Network.
- Install the CF Dev plugin required to run PCF Dev:
$ cf install-plugin cfdev
Start PCF Dev. Enter the following command, replacing
FILEPATH/FILEwith the filepath of the .iso or .tgz file you downloaded:
cf dev start -f FILEPATH/FILE
It may take several minutes for the PCF Dev VM and its services to start.
After the PCF Dev is now running banner appears, you can log in.
To stop PCF Dev, run the following command:
$ cf dev stop
To remove PCF Dev, run the following command:
$ cf uninstall-plugin cfdev
