In this tutorial, I will tell you how to install bukkit/spigot on windows! For a more in-depth tutorial go here.

Install java JDK which you can get right here. If you develop plugins you may not have to install this. You must also install Git for windows, which you can find here.
Run the installers and let them install and now you are ready to compile the jars!

-==Making the jars==-
You need to download BuildTools by spigot to make the jars. You should make a new directory and put BuildTools.jar into it. Next, open Git Bash which should be on your desktop or in your windows screen. Type into it cd <folder where your BuildTools.jar is>. Next type in these commands depending on what bit computer you have:
64 Bit Windows: "JAVA_HOME="C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_25/" java -jar BuildTools.jar
32 Bit Windows: "C:/Program Files (x86)/Java/jdk1.8.0_25/" java -jar BuildTools.jar

-==Obtaining the Jars==-
It will take around 10 minutes for the jars to be compiled. When the jars are complete, you will find them here:
Spigot: Spigot/Spigot-Server/target/
Bukkit: Bukkit/target

It means you got to make the directory. Then use cd <path>. For example C:\Users\<your user name>\Build

So it looks like that you didn't run the command in GIT BASH. You need to refer your java home and then run the jar. Then you will probably have to wait 10 minutes or so and nothing will be running and it will be telling you to type in another command. Then spigot should be in that directory.

Um, I don't have a Mac so I can't guarantee I'd be able to make one. You should use the link I sent you, if there isn't a description for mac, I'd just try the windows one.
