A giter8 template that creates an sbt project for these great frameworks :

  • Scalatra : Web application framework in scala (sooooo easy to use !)
  • Squeryl : Scala ORM for several relational database
  • FlywayDB : Database migration framework

This template also includes several plugins :

  • eclipse plugin
  • IntelliJ idea plugin
  • proguard
  • several JDBC drivers (mysql, postres, h2, jtds, derby)
  • sbt assembly
  • jerkson
  • joda-time
  • specs2

Have a nice day !
