Where to find help with sbt?

For almost one week I try to get over a problem in sbt and I am not sure what to do. I have the feeling, that sbt is a nice tool but with not very intuitive documentation.

What is the best way to get help for sbt related problems? I tried on StackOverflow but sbt is there not very well represented.

Any ideas for me?

You can ask here, or on stackoverflow, or on https://gitter.im/sbt/sbt


Can you link to the question(s) you asked on Stack Overflow that didn’t get attention?

This was my question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60742623/where-to-put-enableplugins-in-sbt.

It got attention when I started a bounty and eventaully I could solve my problem. Now I am looking for a way to give feedback to the authors of the documentation I followed, maybe they want to modify it.


You could open an issue at https://github.com/sbt/sbt-native-packager/issues , or send a pull request that modifies the files under https://github.com/sbt/sbt-native-packager/tree/master/src/sphinx

I heartily agree. The documentation is poorly organized with no index or search feature. I find it very frustrating.


I heard that there were 3 people who fully understood sbt. One died, one went mad, the other forgot.
