The launcher above downloads the JARs it needs upon launch. These JARs are downloaded to / picked from the cache of coursier. You may prefer to have the launcher embed all these JARs, so that nothing needs to be downloaded or picked from a cache upon launch. Passing
--standalone to the
coursier bootstrap command generates such a launcher,
$ SCALA_VERSION=2.12.8 ALMOND_VERSION=0.8.2 $ coursier bootstrap --standalone \ -r jitpack \ -i user -I user:sh.almond:scala-kernel-api_$SCALA_VERSION:$ALMOND_VERSION \ sh.almond:scala-kernel_$SCALA_VERSION:$ALMOND_VERSION \ --sources --default=true \ -o almond
but that launcher won't work fine until something like https://github.com/lihaoyi/Ammonite/pull/850 is merged in Ammonite.
