sbt: the rebel cut
An alternative script for running sbt. It works with sbt 0.13.0 projects and (in principle) all earlier versions. If you're in an sbt project directory, the system will figure out the required versions of sbt and scala, downloading them if necessary.
Put the (self-contained) sbt script somewhere on your path, for instance:
curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/paulp/sbt-extras/master/sbt > ~/bin/sbt \ && chmod 0755 ~/bin/sbt
sbt -v[erbosely] creating a new project built with the latest scala 2.10.x.

Usage: sbt [options] Note that options which are passed along to sbt begin with -- whereas options to this runner use a single dash. Any sbt command can be scheduled to run first by prefixing the command with --, so --warn, --error and so on are not special. Output filtering: if there is a file in the home directory called .sbtignore and this is not an interactive sbt session, the file is treated as a list of bash regular expressions. Output lines which match any regex are not echoed. One can see exactly which lines would have been suppressed by starting this runner with the -x option. -h | -help print this message -v verbose operation (this runner is chattier) -d, -w, -q aliases for --debug, --warn, --error (q means quiet) -x debug this script -trace <level> display stack traces with a max of <level> frames (default: -1, traces suppressed) -debug-inc enable debugging log for the incremental compiler -no-colors disable ANSI color codes -sbt-create start sbt even if current directory contains no sbt project -sbt-dir <path> path to global settings/plugins directory (default: ~/.sbt/<version>) -sbt-boot <path> path to shared boot directory (default: ~/.sbt/boot in 0.11+) -ivy <path> path to local Ivy repository (default: ~/.ivy2) -no-share use all local caches; no sharing -offline put sbt in offline mode -jvm-debug <port> Turn on JVM debugging, open at the given port. -batch Disable interactive mode -prompt <expr> Set the sbt prompt; in expr, 's' is the State and 'e' is Extracted -script <file> Run the specified file as a scala script # sbt version (default: sbt.version from project/build.properties if present, otherwise 0.13.13) -sbt-force-latest force the use of the latest release of sbt: 0.13.13 -sbt-version <version> use the specified version of sbt (default: 0.13.13) -sbt-dev use the latest pre-release version of sbt: 0.13.13 -sbt-jar <path> use the specified jar as the sbt launcher -sbt-launch-dir <path> directory to hold sbt launchers (default: ~/.sbt/launchers) -sbt-launch-repo <url> repo url for downloading sbt launcher jar (default: http://repo.typesafe.com/typesafe/ivy-releases) # scala version (default: as chosen by sbt) -28 use 2.8.2 -29 use 2.9.3 -210 use 2.10.6 -211 use 2.11.8 -212 use 2.12.1 -scala-home <path> use the scala build at the specified directory -scala-version <version> use the specified version of scala -binary-version <version> use the specified scala version when searching for dependencies # java version (default: java from PATH, currently java version "1.8.0_102") -java-home <path> alternate JAVA_HOME # passing options to the jvm - note it does NOT use JAVA_OPTS due to pollution # The default set is used if JVM_OPTS is unset and no -jvm-opts file is found <default> -Xms512m -Xmx1536m -Xss2m JVM_OPTS environment variable holding either the jvm args directly, or the reference to a file containing jvm args if given path is prepended by '@' (e.g. '@/etc/jvmopts') Note: "@"-file is overridden by local '.jvmopts' or '-jvm-opts' argument. -jvm-opts <path> file containing jvm args (if not given, .jvmopts in project root is used if present) -Dkey=val pass -Dkey=val directly to the jvm -J-X pass option -X directly to the jvm (-J is stripped) # passing options to sbt, OR to this runner SBT_OPTS environment variable holding either the sbt args directly, or the reference to a file containing sbt args if given path is prepended by '@' (e.g. '@/etc/sbtopts') Note: "@"-file is overridden by local '.sbtopts' or '-sbt-opts' argument. -sbt-opts <path> file containing sbt args (if not given, .sbtopts in project root is used if present) -S-X add -X to sbt's scalacOptions (-S is stripped)
