Ok so I've been trying to get nutch running on my Windows 10 machine for a while now.
Online resources have been lacking in recent tutorials. So this is my notes on the matter.
So the offical tutorials are at https://wiki.apache.org/nutch/
And I downloaded the binaries from http://www-eu.apache.org/dist/nutch/2.3.1/
I grabbed the zip file as I'm on Windows.
