SBT plugin for project deployment

Scala versions: 2.12 2.10
sbt plugins: 1.0 0.13


It's a SBT plugin for SBT project deployment. Steps of deployment:

  1. compile project locally and package it to "zip" archive (thanks to sbt-native-packager)
  2. connect to remote server using SSH
  3. make required file structure in app directory (in first time):
     ├── current -> ../releases/20150090083000/
     ├── releases
     │   ├── 20150090083000
     │   └── 20150080072500
     ├── tmp
     │   └──
     └── shared
         └── <linked_files and linked_dirs>
  4. copy obtained archive to remote server, extract it and invoke stop/start scripts
  5. goto step 2 with next app server (if multiple server deploy configured)


  1. Integrate with your SBT project:

    Add to project/plugins.sbt

    addSbtPlugin("com.github.somewater" % "sbt-onebutton-deploy" % "0.0.2")

    Add to build.sbt

  2. Generate deploy config from template, run:

    sbt deployGenerateConf

    Edit new config placed in conf/deploy.conf

  3. Server setup:

    • required: create start/stop scripts for service, for example using runit
    • optional: create directory for project logs (or other release-shared files like local config etc.)


  1. Checkout VCS to required project state

  2. Run deploy:

    sbt deploy

    Or run deploy on non-default stage:

    sbt "deploy production"


  • Deployment tested on linux servers
  • SSH access to remote servers with required permissions
  • unzip utility should be installed on all remote servers (installed by default on most linux distributions)
