Lifty is a plugin that adds scaffolding to SBT 0.11.x. See for more information

Getting started

You need to have SBT installed (any version of SBT in th 0.11.x series should do)

Now, add lifty as a global plugin by adding the following line to your ~/.sbt/plugins/build.sbt file:

addSbtPlugin("org.lifty" % "lifty" % "1.7.4")

Whenever you're in a SBT session you now have the lifty command avaiable. The lifty command has tab-completion enabled to make it faster/easier to use. Try typing lifty and hit tab in an SBT session.

Now that you have Lifty installed you need to teach it how to generate different files for you. You do so by pointing lifty to a recipe. This site contains a list of all currently known recipes.

Here's what you would have to type to teach Lifty about Lift projects and templates

> lifty learn lift

To create a fresh Lift webapp and start it simply type:

> lifty create lift project
> reload          
> container:start
> container:stop
