homebrew your scala native config

Scala versions: 3.x 2.13 2.12
sbt plugins: 1.0


Homebrew your Scala Native config! An sbt plugin that configures compileOptions, linkingOptions, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to brew-installed libraries.


addSbtPlugin("com.armanbilge" % "sbt-scala-native-config-brew" % "0.1.2")


nativeBrewFormulas += "curl"

The plugin has two additional requirements:

  1. brew is already installed in your system. Use the nativeBrew setting to point it at a non-default location.
  2. The desired formulae have already been installed. The plugin will not install them for you; it only configures Scala Native to use an existing installation.

However, these are only soft requirements: if brew or the requested formulae are not installed, the plugin will log a warning and not update any configuration. So it will not interfere with a user who does not have or want brew.

Future releases may introduce capabilities to automatically install formulae and self-bootstrap without an existing brew installation. Please open an issue if these features are important to you.

GitHub Actions

An additional plugin integrates with sbt-typelevel-github-actions.

addSbtPlugin("com.armanbilge" % "sbt-scala-native-config-brew-github-actions" % "0.1.2")

ThisBuild / githubWorkflowBuildPreamble ++= nativeBrewInstallWorkflowSteps.value


The core logic is published for Scala 2.12, 2.13, and 3, independently of sbt. This should facilitate the development of a Mill plugin.
