Sorry if my question is too obvious, but bare with me here. At my day job we have development computers without internet connection, please don’t ask me why, people here are kinda paranoid about security and stuff. We have separate compiters or laptop for googling stuff up and use stack overflow, we use usb flash drives to download something from the internet and put into our offline computers for development.
We’ve never used Scala or other JVM based language before, but I want to introduce Scala to my development team. Do you think I can really develop in Scala without internet access?
How do I properly install SBT with Scala compiler? As far as I understood on the first run SBT downloads a lot of stuff like the latest Scala compiler. What would be the prefered way to download all this stuff manually? Can I use jar-download.com or something to help me out with that? How do I make SBT use manually downloaded packages instead of going to the internet?
How do I properly install Scala Metals plugin for VSCode? As far as I understood it installs a few libraries from the internet as well on the first run.
What would be the preferred way of installing packages for SBT while being offline? I know there some tools like Artifactory or something like that, that is tipically used for restricted development environments, but sadly tools like that can’t be used here due to the paranoya described before.
When I played a bit with Kotlin I just use jar-download.com, made a Intellij IDEA folder based project, and added all downloaded jars to the project. It worked somewhat well, but I’d like to use Scala instead of Kotlin. And use VSCode instead of Intellij.
