This is the 0.11.x series of sbt (soon to be 0.12.x).
- Setup: Describes getting started with the latest binary release. See below to build from source.
- FAQ: Explains how to get help, how to report an issue, and how to contribute.
- There is a video of a demo given at Scala Days 2011 based on sbt 0.10.0 that gives an introduction to the configuration system in sbt 0.10.0 and later. See the documentation for current information.
- Google Code: hosts sbt 0.7.7 and earlier versions
Build from source
- Install the current stable binary release of sbt (see Setup), which will be used to build sbt from source.
Get the source code.
$ git clone git://github.com/harrah/xsbt.git $ cd xsbt
The initial branch is the development branch 0.12, which contains the latest code for the 0.12.x series. To build a specific release or commit, switch to the associated tag. The tag for the latest stable release is v0.12.0-M2:
$ git checkout v0.12.0-M2
Note that sbt is always built with the previous stable release. For example, the 0.12 branch is built with 0.12.0-M2, the v0.11.2 tag is built with 0.11.1, and the v0.11.0 tag is built with 0.10.1.
To build the launcher, publish all components locally, and build API and SXR documentation:
$ sbt build-all
Alternatively, the individual commands run by
build-allmay be executed directly:
$ sbt publish-local proguard sxr doc
To use this locally built version of sbt, copy your stable ~/bin/sbt script to ~/bin/xsbt and change it to use the launcher jar in
<xsbt>/target/. For the v0.12.0-M2 tag, the full location is:
If using the 0.12 development branch, the launcher is at:
When developing sbt itself, there is no need to run
build-all, since this generates documentation as well. For the fastest turnaround time for checking compilation only, run
To use your modified version of sbt in a project locally, run
publish-local. If you have modified the launcher, also run
publish-local, clean the
~/.sbt/boot/ directory. Alternatively, if sbt is running and the launcher hasn't changed, run
reboot full to have sbt do this for you.
If a project has
project/build.properties defined, either delete the file or change
