Install LeanFT for Mac

This section includes instructions for installing LeanFT on Mac.

Manual installation

Download the LeanFT installation file and install LeanFT on your machine: 

  1. Make sure your machine meets the installation Prerequisites before you start, otherwise the installation will fail.

  2. Log into Micro Focus SaaS. If you do not have an account, create one.

  3. Go to the LeanFT download page and download the installation file for Mac.

  4. Unzip the file.
  5. Close all Safari browser pages.
  6. Launch the installation by running the LeanFTSetup.app setup package.

  7. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    On the Installation Options page, select an installation mode:

    Mode For computers where you plan to...
    LeanFT runtime engine only

    Run existing LeanFT tests without modifying them.

    Full installation

    Develop and run LeanFT tests.

    Select the IDEs on which to install the LeanFT plugin and enter the relevant path to the IDE. Make sure to include the full path to the IDE, including the file. For example: /Applications/IntelliJ IDEA.app

    Note: The LeanFT installation can install the LeanFT plugin only on one of the Eclipse/Spring Tool Suite/JBoss Developer Studio IDEs. Accordingly, you can enter only one IDE path for this option.

    When the full installation is complete, a LeanFT menu is added to the IDEs you selected, and LeanFT project templates are available when creating a new project in the IDE.

    Note: If you run the Full installation but do not select any IDEs for the LeanFT plugin, the LeanFT SDKs are still installed in /Applications/LeanFT/sdk.

  8. When the installation is complete, continue with Post installation.

Default LeanFT installation location on Mac

LeanFT is installed by default in /Applications/LeanFT

After installation, you can move the installation folder to another location if you need to, in which case, you must define a system variable called LEANFT_HOME that points to the new location.

Tip: If you move the installation to <users>/Applications/LeanFT, you do not need to define the LEANFT_HOME system variable.
