This sbt 0.10 plugin generates a version.txt file in the root of your classpath. This is typically used by the guardian-management manifest reporter, which displays the content of this file.

To use:

  1. Work out what released version you want to use by looking at the tags list for this repository.

  2. Add the sbt-version-info-plugin to your sbt build, by creating project/plugins/project/plugins.scala that looks like:

     import sbt._
     object Plugins extends Build {
       lazy val plugins = Project("plugins", file("."))
  3. The VersionInfo trait relies on a couple of system properties to obtain the build number etc from TeamCity. To pass these in you want a sbt start script that looks a bit like this (which by convention we call sbt-tc):

    cat /dev/null | java -Xmx1G -XX:MaxPermSize=250m \
     -Dsbt.log.noformat=true \
     -Dbuild.number="$BUILD_NUMBER" \
     -Dbuild.vcs.number="$BUILD_VCS_NUMBER" \
     -jar sbt-launch-0.10.0.jar "$@"
