In most cases your project JDK is not compatible with Scala or sbt version, try to change the Scala Compile Server SDK.

  2. From the options on the left, select Build, Execution, Deployment | Compiler | Scala | Scala Compiler Server.
  3. In JVM SDK field specify the appropriate SDK.

Giter8 is a command line tool to generate files and directories from templates published on GitHub or any other git repository. It’s implemented in Scala and runs through the sbt launcher, but it can produce output for any purpose.
