How do I install Nxt?

You can start your Nxt adventure by downloading and installing the Nxt software.  Nxt is written in Java, and requires an up-to-date Java installation in order to be run. The latest version of Java requires MacOS 10.7 or later.

If you need it, you can download the Mac OS X Java Developer's Kit here (currently at version 7u60 – look for "Java SE Development Kit", and don't forget to accept the license agreement!)

The original software

If you're looking for the most up-to-date version of the Nxt software from the development team, this is the place to get it:

Alternate software

Members of the Nxt community are creating alternatives to the official client software.  Many of these are very promising, but you should try them at your own risk.

  • wesley's MacOS client is a standalone client created by wesleyh. It will install the correct version of Java for you, if needed, and then run the Nxt software as a dedicated application. It will also automatically update your software when new versions of the client are released.
  • DGEX's Offspring client (download link)
