I just tried to load some project with sbt 0.12.0. Sbt failed to resolve some plugin dependency and produced rather unhelpful message (attached below).

Let me make clear what's suboptimal with this error message:

  • it provides a long stacktrace that is most likely not helpful to the user
  • it doesn't provide any clue where this plugin dependency has been defined (in this case it was in ~/.sbt/plugins/plugins.sbt

The way the error is presented makes it really hard for the user to figure out a solution because it's fairly easy to forget about global plugin configuration. The best solution would be to get rid of the stacktrace and print the path of file where given dependency has been defined.
