If you want the generated jar or native binary you can use
jbang export local <script> to get it copied (exported)

Publish via jitpack
You can use
export mavenrepo to publish any github hosted jbang app into a maven project by using a
jitpack.yml as follows:
before_install: - curl -Ls https://sh.jbang.dev | bash -s - app setup install: - ~/.jbang/bin/jbang export mavenrepo --force -O target -Dgroup=$GROUP -Dartifact=$ARTIFACT -Dversion=$VERSION hello.java - mkdir -p ~/.m2/repository - cp -rv target/* ~/.m2/repository/
You should only need to change
hello.java to match your application/script.
