Generate Maven repository which contains the given module and all its run-time dependencies, including the Ceylon runtime, which makes that repository usable by Maven as a regular Maven repository.

Alternatively, running with --for-import creates a special repository set up suitable for importing the Ceylon distribution into Maven Central. This is mostly useful for the Ceylon team.



Specifies the folder to use for caching downloaded modules. (default: ~/.ceylon/cache)


Specifies the current working directory for this tool. (default: the directory where the tool is run from)

--exclude-module=moduleOrFile, -x moduleOrFile

Excludes modules from the resulting Maven repository. Can be a module name or a file containing module names. Can be specified multiple times.


Special set up to create a set of folders to import the distrib.


Special set up to create a set of folders to import the Ceylon SDK.


Alternate JDK provider module (defaults to the current running JDK).

Downgrade which were compiled with a more recent version of the distribution to the version of that module present in this distribution (1.3.3). This might fail with a linker error at runtime. For example if the module depended on an API present in the more recent version, but absent from 1.3.3. Allowed arguments are upgrade, downgrade or abort. Default: upgrade


Specifies the XML file to use to load Maven artifact overrides. See for information. Deprecated: use --overrides.


Indicates that the default repositories should not be used.

--offline, -L

Enables offline mode that will prevent connections to remote repositories.

--out=file, -o file

Target Maven repository folder (defaults to maven-repository).

--overrides=file, -O file

Specifies the XML file to use to load module overrides. See for information. Experimental.


Specifies a module repository containing dependencies. Can be specified multiple times. (default: modules, ~/.ceylon/repo,


Specifies the system repository containing essential modules. (default: $CEYLON_HOME/repo)

--timeout=seconds, -T seconds

Sets the timeout for connections to remote repositories, use 0 for no timeout (default: 20).

--verbose[=flags], -d

Produce verbose output. If no flags are given then be verbose about everything, otherwise just be verbose about the flags which are present. Allowed flags include: all, loader.
