Lift Scripts

This is my first foray into Lift and I thought that the command to generate a project was pretty long:

mvn archetype:generate -U                                   \
  -DarchetypeGroupId=net.liftweb                            \
  -DarchetypeArtifactId=lift-archetype-basic                \
  -DarchetypeVersion=1.0                                    \
  -DremoteRepositories= \
  -DgroupId=$GROUP_ID                                       \
  -DartifactId=$ARTIFACT_ID                                 \

What do programmers do? Automate!

$ lift gen com.mycompany twitter

I also have shortcuts for starting Jetty and running the tests:

$ lift start
$ lift test

These two are pretty minor, but this could be the beginning of something.


The code comes packaged into it’s own entity. To install on your machine:

$ git clone git://
$ cd lift-scripts
$ ant install

The install task will symlink all binaries from bin/ to your ~/bin, minus the .sh extension.


This code is placed in the public domain.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
