and

https://github.com/gilt/sbt-dependency-graph-sugar

Be sure to install GraphWiz first, I used Homebrew on my Mac

brew install graphviz

and I also had to create a config file

with the following content

The readme explains how to use it pretty well, simply start sbt CLI

It will give you a graph that looks something like this (it is in SVG format so it is searchable!!!) Now you should see which package/jar is using which, and also where the different versions clash…dependency-graph

 

Show the class path for the run command
