is there any good documentation on embedding sbt as a library? I'm thinking of developing an application that will internally use sbt for handling certain tasks. forking out is pretty unacceptable for my use case

@pfn not really a ton. We've done it a few times though. Which pieces do you want?
Perry

Aug 02 2015 18:40
basically, everything, except cli
I want everything I need to run my plugin programmatically
while embedded as part of a larger application, @jsuereth
would like to be able to make use of watchSources as well

AND , does this mean you'd want to run the configuration classes so you get defaults, or woudl you be ok instantiating all that manually?

gotta find something to make use of my 3 year investment on this plugin, since scala for android is dead for 2.12
dunno what you mean by configuration classes

@pfn oh? are you referring to requiring jdk 8 support?

basically, and requiring, not dropping

figures. still, probably a temporary inconvenience rather than the end of scala on android.

for now, it's a dead end, but it isn't terrible as 2.11 is a very stable release
