How to install maven on Mac OSX 10.9 (mavericks)

I just updated to the fresh OSX 10.9 and found that a few things are not there, these things include “maven” too. So you can install Maven with package manager.
That Package Manager is Homebrew.

Homebrew website

Install Homebrew if you don’t have it in your system

Just apply the following command:

Then install Maven using this package manager.

Run this command on your terminal:

$ brew install maven

After completing the download just confirm that your maven is successfully installed, run the command:

$ maven -version

If you get the following output, it means maven is installed successfully.

 Apache Maven 3.1.1 (0728685237757ffbf44136acec0402957f723d9a; 2013-09-17 20:52:22+0530)
