Thank you. I had to create /opt/gradle myself. The unzip -d did not do it for me. Also before checking gradle -v, I had to make sure that JAVA_HOME was set. Thanks for a very concise writeup.

Thanks for share it, is works perfectly for gradle 1.5, you should change the download URL for http://downloads.gradle.org/distributions

Cheers. I had to manually create /opt/gradle and run the commands by hand, but thanks.

Thanks for this. Small improvement though:

sudo printf "export GRADLE_HOME=/opt/gradle/latest\nexport PATH=\$PATH:\$GRADLE_HOME/bin" > /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh

should be

printf "export GRADLE_HOME=/opt/gradle/latest\nexport PATH=\$PATH:\$GRADLE_HOME/bin" | sudo tee /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh >/dev/null

Building on what others wrote, here is a small script that works on Centos 7 (always returns the latest version of gradle from the URL)

#!/bin/bash
cd /root
gradle_package=`curl -s http://services.gradle.org/distributions --list-only | sed -n 's/.*\(gradle-.*.all.zip\).*/\1/p' | egrep -v "milestone|rc" | head -1`
gradle_version=`ls ${gradle_package} | cut -d "-" -f 1,2`
mkdir /opt/gradle
wget -N http://services.gradle.org/distributions/${gradle_package}
unzip -oq ./${gradle_package} -d /opt/gradle
ln -sfnv ${gradle_version} /opt/gradle/latest
printf "export GRADLE_HOME=/opt/gradle/latest\nexport PATH=\$PATH:\$GRADLE_HOME/bin" > /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh
. /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh
hash -r ; sync
# check installation
gradle -v

If you don't have wget installed and want to stick with curl for the download as well, replace the wget line with:

curl -L -Of http://services.gradle.org/distributions/${gradle_package}

Fixed gradle_version determination in @fluffybastard version. Checked on CentOS 7.1

#!/bin/bash
cd /root
gradle_package=`curl -s http://services.gradle.org/distributions --list-only | sed -n 's/.*\(gradle-.*.all.zip\).*/\1/p' | egrep -v "milestone|rc" | head -1`
gradle_version=`echo ${gradle_package} | cut -d "-" -f 1,2`
mkdir /opt/gradle
curl -L -Of http://services.gradle.org/distributions/${gradle_package}
unzip -oq ./${gradle_package} -d /opt/gradle
ln -sfnv ${gradle_version} /opt/gradle/latest
printf "export GRADLE_HOME=/opt/gradle/latest\nexport PATH=\$PATH:\$GRADLE_HOME/bin" > /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh
. /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh

It became easy :
https://gradle.org/gradle-download/
Snippet:
Install with SDKMAN!

Get SDKMAN!
$ curl -s https://get.sdkman.io | bash

Open a new terminal and install Gradle
$ sdk install gradle 3.0

sudo printf "export GRADLE_HOME=/opt/gradle/latest\nexport PATH=$PATH:$GRADLE_HOME/bin" > /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh

Try this:

printf "export GRADLE_HOME=/opt/gradle/latest\nexport PATH=\$PATH:\$GRADLE_HOME/bin" | sudo tee /etc/profile.d/gradle.sh

Thanks! It was very succinct info.

Instead of gradle -v I had to do /opt/gradle/bin/gradle -v
