ICBM is a build tool that specializes in building Java applications. It also includes support for handling protocol buffer definitions, Play framework 1.x projects, and build steps that are arbitrary commands.
ICBM has been the primary Java build tool used at Yext since late 2010.
- Python 2.7
- Apache Ant
- Java 6 *
* Java 6 is required only because compiling with Java 6 specifically is currently hardcoded in the default Ant buildfile ICBM uses.
Quick Start by Example
example/ folder contains an example project that shows off some of the features of ICBM. To try it out, run the following in the

To Learn More
This documentation is a work in progress, and it will be fleshed out in more detail leading up to our live event on September 24, 2013. We are also working on sanding off more of the Yext-specific rough edges.
In the meantime, we invite you to join the project and send questions or contributions through either GitHub or our Google Group!
