sbt is a simple build tool for Scala and Java. sbt downloads your library dependencies via Coursier, incrementally compiles and tests your projects, integrates with IDEs like IntelliJ and VS Code, makes JAR packages, and publishes them to Maven Central, JVM community's package registry.

scalaVersion := "3.3.1"

You just need one line of build.sbt to get started with Scala.
