    Project mention: Code coverage reporting incorrect in InteliJ, is there a solution that can determine code coverage correctly for Scala? | /r/scala | 2023-02-14

    I use this:

    I know this because build.sbt knows this.

  • sbt-pack

    A sbt plugin for creating distributable Scala packages.

  • sbt-mima-plugin

    A tool for catching binary incompatibility in Scala

    Project mention: Semver violations are common, better tooling is the answer | | 2023-09-07

    In the Scala ecosystem, MiMa [1] has been in widespread use for years. It automatically checks compatibility for the binary API of a library. Every library with any amount of success uses it. One could say it's the foundation of a stable ecosystem. We also have sbt-version-policy [2] to set it up with minimal configuration (and directly relate it to SemVer).

    More recently, we got tasty-mima [3], which checks compatibility at the type system level, rather than the binary level.
