Getting Started Guide page 1 of 14. Next

This Getting Started Guide will get you started with sbt.

sbt uses a small number of concepts to support flexible and powerful build definitions. There are not that many concepts, but sbt is not exactly like other build systems and there are details you will stumble on if you haven't read the documentation.

The Getting Started Guide covers the concepts you need to know to create and maintain an sbt build definition.

It is highly recommended to read the Getting Started Guide!

If you are in a huge hurry, the most important conceptual background can be found in .sbt build definition, scopes, and more about settings. But we don't promise that it's a good idea to skip the other pages in the guide.

It's best to read in order, as later pages in the Getting Started Guide build on concepts introduced earlier.

The guide begins with Setup.

Thanks for trying out sbt and have fun!
