sbt-avro is a plugin for sbt-0.12.1 that generates Java sources for Avro schemas and protocols.
Install the plugin
Add the plugin according to the sbt documentation.
For instance, add the following lines to the file hello/project/build.sbt in your project directory:
resolvers += "cavorite" at "http://files.cavorite.com/maven/" addSbtPlugin("com.cavorite" % "sbt-avro" % "0.2")
Import the plugin settings
To activate the plugin, import its settings by adding the following lines to your hello/build.sbt file:
seq( sbtavro.SbtAvro.avroSettings : _*)
All settings and tasks are in the avro scope. If you want to execute the generate task directly, just run avro:generate.

sbt-avro is maintained by Juan Manuel Caicedo. I wrote it based on sbt-protobuf (even this README file!). This is my first attempt to write an sbt plugin, so feel free to send your comments and bug reports.
