This sbt 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/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 the CI server. To pass these in create an SBT start script that for Teamcity 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.jar "$@"

    You can find an example for Hudson/Jenkins at
