Scalastyle plugin for IntelliJ IDEA

Posted by Jan Machacek

Scalastyle is the grammar and style nazi in my projects. It has great SBT plugin, but it does not integrate well with IntelliJ IDEA—my IDE of choice. I met @matthewfarwell at ScalaDays, and he showed me the rather cool Scalastyle Eclipse plugin. And so, I decided to add similar support to the IntelliJ IDEA Scala plugin.

Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala!

At last we are able to see what happened during the Scala Days Berlin 2014.  If you were too very impatient to learn what's hot around the Scala ecosystem, head over to Parleys and watch the talks!

Naturally Cake Solutions was there and our own Jan Macháček and Alex Lashford gave a talk about Monitoring Akka!

So lets catch-up on the latest Scala happenings...

Akka Clustering and Remoting: Alternative Deployment Strategy

Posted by Carl Pulley

24-Jun-2014 10:31:00

Introduction

In my previous posts (see Akka Clustering and Remoting: The Experiment and Akka Clustering and Remoting: Scaling), I defined a distributed ping-pong application and attempted to scale that application into a cloud based Akka cluster. Thus far, deployment has been performed using JClouds and provisioning using Chef.

Now, all major cloud vendors supply a RESTful interface to their cloud infrastructures. So, at least naively, deploying compute nodes should be nothing more than translating between differing vendor REST APIs? In other words, can I build an adapter that abstracts over all these different vendor APIs? Fortunately, δ-cloud has already done most of this work for us, so much so that all I have to do is to use it!
