Scala on Heroku
I was messing around with Scala again the other day. I downloaded the latest Typesafe stack, and the latest version of SBT. I ran into a couple of headaches because all of the SBT examples on the Typesafe website were written for 0.7.x, but a lot of the details of configuration had changed in SBT 0.10.x. It didn’t seem to be worth the hassle, so I switched back to 0.7.7 and got down to happily hacking away in Scala.
Well today Heroku announced Scala support. That sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? And the setup looks nice and simple, like everything Heroku does. It requires SBT 0.11.0 though. So now I guess I’ve got the incentive I needed to plow through the 0.7.x to 0.10.x transition. It’s always nice to have a carrot in that sort of transition, isn’t it?
