Setup

Hosting

The Tracker is published to Maven Central and JCenter, which should make it easy to add it as a dependency into your own Scala app.

SBT

Add the Scala Tracker to your build.sbt like this:

resolvers += "JCenter" at "https://jcenter.bintray.com/" // you can omit if you're planning to use Maven Central libraryDependencies += "com.snowplowanalytics" %% "snowplow-scala-tracker" % "0.4.0"

Gradle

If you are using Gradle in your own Scala application, then add our Maven repository in your build.gradle file:

repositories { ... jcenter() }

Then add into the same file:

dependencies { ... // Snowplow Scala Tracker compile 'com.snowplowanalytics:snowplow-scala-tracker_2.12:0.3.0' }

Notice a _2.12 postfix in artifactId. This is used for Scala libraries and denote Scala version which artifact (in our case snowplow-scala-tracker) is compiled against. It also means that this library will bring a org.scala-lang:scala-library_2.12.x as transitive dependency and if you’re using any other Scala dependency you should keep these postfixes in accordance (snowplow-scala-tracker is also compiled against Scala 2.10 and 2.11).

Maven

If you are using Maven for building your Scala application, then add the following code into your HOME/.m2/settings.xml to be able to use this repository:

<settings> <profiles> <profile> <!-- ... --> <repositories> <repository> <id>central</id> <name>bintray</name> <url>https://jcenter.bintray.com/</url> <releases> <enabled>true</enabled> </releases> <snapshots> <enabled>false</enabled> </snapshots> </repository> </repositories> <pluginRepositories> <pluginRepository> <snapshots> <enabled>false</enabled> </snapshots> <id>central</id> <name>bintray-plugins</name> <url>http://jcenter.bintray.com</url> </pluginRepository> </pluginRepositories> </profile> </profiles> <activeProfiles> <activeProfile>bintray</activeProfile> </activeProfiles> </settings>

Then add into your project’s pom.xml:

<dependency> <groupId>com.snowplowanalytics</groupId> <artifactId>snowplow-scala-tracker_2.12</artifactId> <version>0.4.0</version> </dependency>

Notice a _2.12 postfix in artifactId. This is used for Scala libraries and denote Scala version which artifact (in our case snowplow-scala-tracker) is compiled against. It also means that this library will bring a org.scala-lang:scala-library_2.12.x as transitive dependency and if you’re using any other Scala dependency you should keep these postfixes in accordance (snowplow-scala-tracker is also compiled against Scala 2.10 and 2.11).

Older versions

Scala Tracker is published on JCenter and Maven Central since version 0.3.0. Previous versions can be found on Snowplow’s hosted Maven repository.
