Streamlining Your Scala Development: A Guide to Creating SBT Projects in Eclipse

Hey there,

I'm currently knee-deep in a Scala course on Coursera called "Functional Programming in Scala" taught by none other than Martin Ordersky - the inventor of Scala. Let me tell you, creating a Scala ecosystem is no walk in the park.

Recently, I hit a roadblock while trying to create an Eclipse project using sbt. But fear not, my fellow Scala enthusiast, for I have figured it out and decided to share my solution with you all.

Firstly, fire up your terminal and run a sudo. Once you're in, type in the following commands:

mkdir ~/.sbt/0.13/plugins/
cd ~/.sbt/0.13/plugins/
vi plugins.sbt

Now, add the following line:

addSbtPlugin("com.typesafe.sbteclipse" % "sbteclipse-plugin" % "4.0.0")

Save the file and reload the terminal.

Finally, run the commands:


Voila! You should now have your Eclipse project up and running like a dream. I hope this solution saves you some time and headache. Happy coding, my friends!
