Dowload and unpack the source code

You can either download the source code release of Tajo or check out the development codebase from Git.

Download the latest source release

Choose a download site from this list of Apache Download Mirrors. Click on the suggested mirror link. This will take you to a mirror of Tajo Releases. Download the file that ends in .tar.gz to your local filesystem, e.g. tajo-x.y.z-src.tar.gz.

Decompress and untar your downloaded file and then change into the unpacked directory.

tar xzvf tajo-x.y.z-src.tar.gz

Check out the source code via Git

The development codebase can also be downloaded from the Apache git repository as follows:

git clone

A read-only git repository is also mirrored on Github.
