In a cross-built sbt plugin project, scripted will run all tests under src/sbt-test.


As an sbt plugin author, there are several situations where it would be good to be able to conditionally run a scripted tests:

  • A plugin has not been cross published for sbt 1.0 yet.
  • The plugin version is different for sbt 0.13 and sbt 1.0 (e.g. tut)
  • Certain scripted tests track the minimum required sbt versions, e.g. 0.13.9 and 1.0.0-RC2.

The scripted plugin allows to pass which tests to run, however, this requires additional configuration of the form (e.g. sbt-site)

TaskKey[Unit]("runScriptedTest") := Def.taskDyn {
  (sbtBinaryVersion in pluginCrossBuild).value match {
    case "0.13" => Def.task(scripted.toTask("..."))
    case "1.0"  => Def.task(scripted.toTask("..."))


For all scripted tests in which project/ exist, the value of the sbt.version property is read. If its binary version is different from sbtBinaryVersion in pluginCrossBuild the test will be skipped and a message indicating this will be logged.


sbt version: 0.13.16, 1.0.2
