Goal

SBT native packager lets you build application packages in native formats. It offers different archetypes for common configurations, such as simple Java apps or server applications.

Issues/Discussions

  • Discussion/Questions: If you wish to ask questions about the native packager, we have a mailinglist and we're very active on Stack Overflow. You can either use the sbt tag or the sbt-native-packager tag. They also have far better search support for working around issues.
  • Docs: Our docs are available online. If you'd like to help improve the docs, they're part of this repository in the src/sphinx directory. ScalaDocs are also available.

    The old documentation can be found here

  • Issues/Feature Requests: Finally, any bugs or features you find you need, please report to our issue tracker. Please check the compatibility matrix to see if your system is able to produce the packages you want.

Installation

Add the following to your project/plugins.sbt file:

// for autoplugins
addSbtPlugin("com.typesafe.sbt" % "sbt-native-packager" % "1.1.1")

In your build.sbt enable the plugin you want. For example the JavaAppPackaging.

enablePlugins(JavaAppPackaging)

Or if you need a server with autostart support

enablePlugins(JavaServerAppPackaging)

Build

If you have enabled one of the archetypes (app or server), you can build your application with

sbt <config-scope>:packageBin

Examples

# universal zip
sbt universal:packageBin

# debian package
sbt debian:packageBin

# rpm package
sbt rpm:packageBin

# docker image
sbt docker:publishLocal

Read more in the specific format documentation on how to configure and build your package.
