Maven support
« on: September 27, 2013, 09:22:54 am »
Hello, I am watching this project for some time now and the only thing me and my friends lack is Maven support. (ie so you could add a dependency into your pom.xml and the library would be downloaded from Maven Central Repository). I think it would also help to spread this amazing framework (optimalization of any user interaction is always helpful).

Anyway, you are doing a really great job.

Regards 8Shade

Why not simply add it to your local repository instead? http://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-3rd-party-jars-local.html

Yes that is a possibility, I actually did that, but I often develop on different machines and this means to install it like this on every machine (which is not hard, but as I said, user interaction optimization is a very good idea while developing anything).

If you want something to be as easy to use as possible, why not have it in the central repository for everyone, so future developers doesn't have to do this step anymore.
