Paradox for Akka documentation

This plugin extends the Paradox sbt plugin with some default settings and sets the Akka Paradox theme.

It is intended as a shared doc theme for the Akka umbrella of projects, and not as a public theme to use on "any" project.


Use the sbt plugin for Akka Paradox:

addSbtPlugin("com.lightbend.akka" % "sbt-paradox-akka" % "<version>")

Enable it instead of the upstream ParadoxPlugin:


For more settings refer to the Paradox documentation
