Scala: Using gradle to build your project

If you want to use gradle to compile scala, ensure you have gradle, either in your system or via the gradle wrapper.

Create this build.gradle file:

apply plugin: 'scala'

repositories {

dependencies {
  compile 'org.scala-lang:scala-library:2.11.6'
  // Your other deps here

sourceSets.main.scala.srcDirs = ['.']

This includes the scala library needed to compile, 2.11.6 is the latest scala at time of writing.

It also changes the defautl scala source file location to the current directory, but if you're using src/main/scala there's no need for this line.

Finally you have run gradle build or ./gradlew build if you're using the gradle wrapper.

scala gradle
