Sbt plugin to generate Scuggest imports

Version Matrix

SBT Scuggest

SBT Scuggest is an SBT plugin that will generate Scuggest entries for your Sublime Text project. It does this by scanning through your SBT build and generating entries for your dependencies. It then adds these dependencies into your sublime project file if one exists or creates one if it doesn't. It creates a backup of the original project file, so nothing is lost if anything goes awry.

NB: In addition if SBT Scuggest finds a JAVA_HOME environment variable defined, it automatically includes the rt.jar from your JDK or JRE. If this is not what you want you can exclude it through scuggestDepFilters.


If you're using SBT versions 0.13.0 to 0.13.9 add the following to your project/plugins.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("net.ssanj" % "sbt-scuggest" % "")

For SBT version 0.13.10 and 1.x add the following to your project/plugins.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("net.ssanj" % "sbt-scuggest" % "")

To install it globally add the required version to ~/.sbt/0.13/plugins/plugin.sbt or ~/.sbt/1.0/plugins/plugin.sbt depending on your sbt version.

If the plugin fails to resolve add this resolver to your project/plugins.sbt:

resolvers += Resolver.url("ssanj", new URL(""))(Resolver.ivyStylePatterns)


  • scuggestSimulate: Whether to simulate updating the Sublime project file (write to STDOUT) or to update the project file. Defaults to false.

Run set scuggestSimulate := true and run scuggestGen to see what will be added to your Sublime project file.

  • scuggestSublimeProjName: The name of the sublime project file (*.sublime-project). The default is to use the SBT build name.

  • scuggestClassDirs: Which directories to look at for loading main and test classes. Defaults to those specified in your SBT build. (target/scala_2.xx/classes and target/scala_2.xx/test-classes)

  • scuggestSearchFilters: Which paths to ignore when searching for classes. Defaults to List("sun", "com/sun").

  • scuggestDepFilters: Any dependencies to not include in the project file. Defaults to: List(test-interface-.+\.jar$, scala-parser-combinators_.+\.jar$, scala-reflect-.+\.jar$, scala-compiler-.+\.jar$, jline-.+\.jar$, scala-xml_.+\.jar)

  • scuggestVerbose: Additional logging about how dependencies are calculated. Defaults to false.


  • scuggestGen: Outputs an updated Sublime project file to STDOUT if scuggestSimulate is true - which is the default, or updates your Sublime project file (or creates one if it does not exist) if scuggestSimulate is false.
