Build Status Download


Ensure that project/ is configured for sbt minimum version of 1.2.1:


Add the following to project/plugins.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("com.typesafe.sbt" % "sbt-web-build-base" % "1.2.3")

Now create a version.sbt with the version declared in it, for example:

version := "1.0.0-SNAPSHOT"

And finally, create a build.sbt that declares the name, description and libraryDependencies and enables the plugin. For example:

lazy val `sbt-project-name` = project in file(".")

description := "My project description"

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "org.webjars" % "my-web-jar" % "1.2.3

Generally, no other settings should be needed, all required settings, such as cross building, organization, scripted configuration, release and publishing configuration are provided by sbt-web-build-base.


A few utility methods are provided:

  • addSbtWeb and addSbtJsEngine - these add dependencies on sbt-web and sbt-js-engine respectively.
