hi tewf! I believe the answer is no
it is specifically an sbt plugin
the runtime, however, can be used w/ maven
(so you can use the generated scala code w/ any build process)
if you're not bound by a legacy constraint.... we highly suggest using sbt for any scala project
@tewf It does not. I have no clue what .idl is...
a windows "interface definition file" ? we don't do anything special for windows
the schema format is pretty simple though, it's like json: https://avro.apache.org/docs/1.7.7/spec.html

Thanks @malcolmgreaves . This is the IDL https://avro.apache.org/docs/1.7.7/idl.html. It's just a lot simpler to read and less verbose than JSON
