A functional language running on JVM.
Scala is now available through Polygott:
Please test it and leave us feedback!
How does this work? I'm not famaliar with Polygott
@Maka: Code highlighting would be nice :)
sbt is a common build tool. Makefile is not common for Scala.
@naftoligugenheim: We're working on a scalable way to add languages - soon we'll be able to add more languages more easily. A few months or so.
Is there a deadline for this?
This is weird. You guys already added support for Julia and still no Scala? Y no Scala?
(Seems it should be easy if you already added Java)
@Tim Chen: oops I mistyped, I meant to say you already started to add support for Julia, doh. Apologies. But still. C'mon Scala's a much more widely used language than a handful of others that have long had support. It's just confusing to us :-/
@heathermiller: We haven't added Julia either. We're in the process of figuring a way to easily add languages (even accepting open source contributions) because right now our current system is not scalable (no pun intended).
What are you guys waiting for?
So... is this going to happen?
Please add Scala support. (look at scastie)
