Summary

A tutorial about effectively building Scala projects, sbt in Action introduces the sbt tool with a simple project that establishes the fundamentals of running commands and tasks. Next, it shows you how to use the peripheral libraries in sbt to make common tasks simpler. Finally, it covers how to deploy software effectively. You'll learn to appreciate how sbt improves the process of developing software, not just running builds.

About the Technology

sbt is a build tool native to Scala that can transform any build scenario into a streamlined, automated, and repeatable process. Its interactive shell lets you customize your builds on the fly, and with sbt's unique incremental compilation feature, you can update only the parts of your project that change, without having to rebuild everything. Mastering sbt, along with the right patterns and best practices, is guaranteed to save you time and trouble on every project.
