Installing the Clirr plugin

There are 2 options to install the Clirr plugin in an existing Maven installation:

  • Automatic install: Call maven plugin:download -DgroupId=clirr -DartifactId=clirr-maven -Dversion={version} where {version} is the version to use. Maven will automatically download the plugin and install it, uninstalling any other version you may already have.
  • Manual install: Download the Clirr plugin jar and copy it in {MAVEN_HOME}/plugins where {MAVEN_HOME} is the location where you have installed Maven. Make sure you also remove any previous Clirr plugin from {MAVEN_HOME}/plugins and delete your {USER_HOME}/.maven/plugins directory.
