  • sbt-js
  • sbt-less
  • modernizr

Optimize build process in development and production by:

  • conditional compilation js and style files depending on mode configuration.

  • compress file or not
  • simplify debugging by separating files in development mode.
  • test production output easily
  • Add custom sbt task like bash script and link to actions

The current version 0.6-M1 does not work properly with jetty v8. To fix this problem, you can use my fork.

In a temp directory git clone git:// 
cd sbt-plugin
clean-cache publish-local
