Welcome to Jeka

Jeka is a general purpose build tool, that is designed as a library + an automation engine.

Users simply write build logic in Java or Kotlin, then they can invoke their code directly from the command line : Java/Kotlin classes become first class citizen build-scripts !!!

This approach provides several benefits developers love : flexibility, lightweight, transparency, discoverability and extendability.

Beside, Jeka tries to keep cognitive load low, introducing a minimal set of concepts. Good skills in Java/Kotiln should be enough to achive builds of any complexity.

Last but not least, Jeka is very lightweight (less than 1Mb) and has zero dependencies, making it friendly to be used as a simple library.
