Plugin for sbt to create Eclipse project definitions. Please see below for installation details and the Documentation for information about configuring sbt-eclipse. Information about contribution policy and license can be found below.

Installation and Basic Usage

  • Open your plugin definition file (or create one if doesn't exist). You can use either:

    • the global file (for version 1.0 and up) at ~/.sbt/SBT_VERSION/plugins/plugins.sbt
    • the project-specific file at PROJECT_DIR/project/plugins.sbt
  • Add sbt-eclipse to the plugin definition file:

    • Version 6.x+ only supports SBT 1.4+. Use 5.2.4 or older for previous versions of SBT
addSbtPlugin("com.github.sbt" % "sbt-eclipse" % "6.0.0")

// For older sbt versions (< 1.4.0)
addSbtPlugin("com.typesafe.sbteclipse" % "sbteclipse-plugin" % "5.2.4")
  • In sbt use the command eclipse to create Eclipse project files

    > eclipse

  • In Eclipse use the Import Wizard to import Existing Projects into Workspace
