First, apologies to anyone not interested. This isn't scala project but it helps to setup scala + sbt. Windows users can skip this announcement because napalm doesn't help them very much.

Napalm is a tool to help manage multiple versions of scala, sbt and other java like projects. It's a small project written as a bash script therefore it should work in most Linux distributions. Definitely works in Arch Linux, Linux Mint and Ubuntu. It should even work in Mac but I haven't tried it.

Here is a quick summary:
Automate installation of archived (zip, gz, bz2, jar) programs that are unsuited or unavailable from a package repository.

Screenshots for the impatient that show how to use it:

And documentation for the rest:

Feedback is always appreciated.
