Scalate support for SBT 0.1x.x

Integration for SBT that lets you generate sources for your Scalate templates and precompile them as part of the normal compilation process. This plugin is published to


Getting the plugin

Include the plugin in project/plugins.sbt:

For sbt 0.12.0:

addSbtPlugin("com.mojolly.scalate" % "xsbt-scalate-generator" % "0.2.2")

For sbt 0.11.3:

resolvers += Resolver.url("sbt-plugin-releases",
  new URL(""))(

addSbtPlugin("com.mojolly.scalate" % "xsbt-scalate-generator" % "0.2.0")

for sbt 0.11.2: (maven central)

libraryDependencies <+= sbtVersion(v => "com.mojolly.scalate" %% "xsbt-scalate-generator" % (v + "-0.1.6"))

or as a git dependency in project/project/build.scala:

import sbt._
import Keys._

object PluginsBuild extends Build {
  lazy val root = Project("plugins", file(".")) dependsOn (scalateGenerate) settings (scalacOptions += "-deprecation")
  lazy val scalateGenerate = ProjectRef(uri("git://"), "xsbt-scalate-generator")

Configuring the plugin

Configure the plugin in build.sbt:

import ScalateKeys._

scalateTemplateDirectory in Compile <<= (sourceDirectory in Compile) { _ / "webapp" / "WEB-INF" }

scalateImports ++= Seq(
  "import scalaz._",
  "import Scalaz._",
  "import org.scalatra.oauth2._",
  "import OAuth2Imports._",
  "import model._"

scalateBindings ++= Seq(
  Binding("flash", "scala.collection.Map[String, Any]", defaultValue = Some("Map.empty")),
  Binding("session", "org.scalatra.Session"),
  Binding("sessionOption", "Option[org.scalatra.Session]"),
  Binding("params", "scala.collection.Map[String, String]"),
  Binding("multiParams", "org.scalatra.MultiParams"),
  Binding("userOption", "Option[ResourceOwner]", defaultValue = Some("None")),
  Binding("user", "ResourceOwner", defaultValue = Some("null")),
  Binding("isAnonymous", "Boolean", defaultValue = Some("true")),
  Binding("isAuthenticated", "Boolean", defaultValue = Some("false")))

Trigger recompilation on save

From version 0.2.2 onwards the plugin detects when sources are changed and will trigger a recompilation. Older versions can add this to their build.sbt:

watchSources <++= (scalateTemplateDirectory in Compile) map (d => (d ** "*").get)
