Nice tool by the way but I can't seem to make it work.

Im using Homebrew in Mac which i used to install sbt (0.11.2)

I followed the instruction on installing lifty to sbt ( ~/.sbt/plugins/build.sbt and ~/.sbt/build.sbt).

But after doing the instruction above, I end up with an error message defined in this issue's title.

I hope you could help me on this one.

Thanks in advance,



Btw, here's the log that I get:

$... error: not found: value Lifty
seq( Lifty.liftySettings : _*)

Please remove the following and try again

  • ~/.ivy2/cache
  • all folders named target in ~/.sbt (recursivly)

Does that help?


The issue still persist.

Please try the snapshot version as

resolvers += Resolver.url("sbt-plugin-snapshots", new URL(""))(Resolver.ivyStylePatterns)

addSbtPlugin("org.lifty" % "lifty" % "1.7.5-SNAPSHOT")

the error is no longer showing but

using "lifty create lift project " on sbt shell doesn't work

lifty create lift project
[error] Lifty doesn't know any recipe named lift
[error] lifty create lift project
[error] ^

Please run this first

lifty learn lift

Thanks a lot.

It's now working like a gem :)

Awesome! :) I'll update the installation guide to just use the SNAPSHOT version then - I think the other jar might be corrupt.

better to release a new version and update the install guide to suit.
