Scala Native

Scala Native works with Scala 3.1.x, 2.13.x and 2.12.x. Scripts are unavailable for Scala 2.12.x.

Scala Native requires the LLVM toolchain - see requirements on Scala Native website.


Enable Scala Native support by passing --native to Scala CLI, such as:

scala-cli Test.scala --native

A Scala Native version can be set by passing --native-version with an argument:

scala-cli Test.scala --native --native-version 0.4.3

Platform compatibility and supported Scala language versions depend on this version.
It is recommended to use the newest stable version.


This section is currently a work in progress, but here are some initial notes:

  • Beware platform dependencies
  • compile / run / test / package should all work
