Giter8 Template for Scala Play! Framework with SBT Layout

April 16, 2018

I’ve been using Scala Play! Framework for a little over a year now, and I’ve come to favor the SBT layout over the default layout.

In all that time, I haven’t come across a template that I can quickly use to get myself up & running, so I decided to roll out my own, using Giter8!

It’s been on my list for a while, and since I’m about to start on a new project, I decided this was the time to do it.

I present, muya/play-sbt-scala-seed.g8 (and the crowd goes mad with joy 🎉) – hehe :)

To use it, simply do:

$ sbt new muya/play-sbt-scala-seed.g8

It’ll ask you a few questions, if you don’t feel like answering, it has some sensible defaults, press ENTER to continue.

This is still v1 of it, I plan to update it to match the official, non-SBT one provided by Play!

Anyway, feel free to use it for your Play Framework projects that need an SBT layout.

Happy Coding! I hope this shaves off a few minutes off your coding time.
