semanticdb-sbt - Semantic API for Scala 2.10 and sbt 0.13

Build Status Join the chat at

The objective of this project is aid migration from sbt v0.13 to v1.0. In particular, the objective is to allow scalafix to use the Scalameta Semantic API for accurate source rewriting of sbt build files. This project is not intended to be used for other purposes.

This project consists of two modules:

  • semanticdb-sbt: a compiler plugin for Scala 2.10 that emits .semanticdb files (see Semantic DB) during compilation. semanticdb-sbt only emits offset positions and it does not make an effort to disambiguate between resolved names in conflicting positions.
  • semanticdb-sbt-runtime: a 2.11/2.12 library that modifies/patches .semanticdb files, produced by semanticdb-sbt. semanticdb-sbt-runtime is used by applications like scalafix at runtime, as opposed to compile-time during creation of .semanticdb files. semanticdb-sbt-runtime does a best-effort of converting the emitted offset positions into range positions as well as to disambiguate between names at conflicting positions.

Note. The codebase still has occasional references to sbthost, which is the old name of semanticdb-sbt.
