kantan.sbt adds two publication-related plugins:


Enabling this plugin for a project marks it as meant to be published. This is mostly meant as a tag for other plugins to piggyback - there’s a kantan-specific plugin, for example, that will set publishTo to sonatype if PublishedPlugin is enabled.

The general idea is that if a project expects to publish artifacts, say, to a maven repository, it should enable this plugin.


Enabling this plugin will do its best to ensure nothing is published, ever, for your project. This can be tricky, as different common plugins rely on different values, but UnpublishedPlugin does its best to block them all.
