sbt: the rebel cut

An alternative script for running sbt. It works with sbt 0.7x projects as well as 0.10+. If you're in an sbt project directory, the runner will figure out the versions of sbt and scala required by the project and download them if necessary.

There's also a template project sbt coming together, but it's unfinished. See below for how to pull the template project in as a plugin. However the runner is quite useful already.

Here's a sample use of the runner: it creates a new project using a snapshot version of sbt as well as a snapshot version of scala, then runs the sbt "about" command.

% sbt -d -sbt-snapshot -210 -sbt-create about

Current -help output:

Usage: sbt [options]

  -h | -help        print this message
  -v | -verbose     this runner is chattier
  -d | -debug       set sbt log level to debug
  -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)
  -sbt-boot <path>  path to shared boot directory (default: ~/.sbt/boot in 0.11 series)
  -ivy      <path>  path to local Ivy repository (default: ~/.ivy2)

  # sbt version (default: from project/build.properties if present, else latest release)
  -sbt-version  <version>   use the specified version of sbt
  -sbt-jar      <path>      use the specified jar as the sbt launcher
  -sbt-rc                   use an RC version of sbt
  -sbt-snapshot             use a snapshot version of sbt

  # scala version (default: latest release)
  -28                       use 2.8.1
  -29                       use 2.9.1
  -210                      use 2.10.0-SNAPSHOT

  JAVA_OPTS     environment variable, if unset uses "-Dfile.encoding=UTF8"
  SBT_OPTS      environment variable, if unset uses "-XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Xms1536m -Xmx1536m -Xss2m"
  .sbtopts      if this file exists in the sbt root, it is prepended to the runner args
  -Dkey=val     pass -Dkey=val directly to the java runtime
  -J-X          pass option -X directly to the java runtime (-J is stripped)

In the case of duplicated or conflicting options, the order above
shows precedence: JAVA_OPTS lowest, command line options highest.

Template project

To see the plugin in action, including the thrilling custom sbt command "help-names":

cd template-project && ../sbt -sbt-rc help-names

The template files are:

project/plugins/project/Build.scala   # you can use this as-is if you want
project/Build.scala                   # this is a starting point for your real Build.scala

The Template build isn't quite finished. There will most likely be a build.sbt DSL variant that does not require a project scala file.
