Scala.js bindings for velocity.js and example applications
To use as a library, just pull in from
To get started, run
sbt ~fastOptJS in this example project.
Obviously you need to have SBT installed.
If you open localhost:12345/target/scala-2.11/classes/velocity-dev.html in your browser, it will show you a sample app, doing various animations and Scala code. Its not meant to be pretty, simply instructive. Do open the Console to see debug messages. There are also 3 other code samples.
If you change your source HTML (inside
/src/main/resources) or Scala (inside
/src/main/scala/example), sbt will recompile as needed.
You then just have to refresh the page to see the new version. Hopefully having an example application will make it clearer on how to use Velocity.js from Scala, i.e. monkey see, monkey do.
The optimized version
sbt fullOptJS for an optimized version
of the final application, useful for final publication. You may well need to copy over
XXX-dev.html to get your latest changes. Be sure to refer to the correct JS as well, as it will have a different name than the fast compiled version. e.g.
If you want to edit in Eclipse (can't compile yet, but still very useful having full IDE with code completion), just run
sbt eclipse the open the generated .project file inside eclipse. Keep sbt running in order to do the JS Compile. https://github.com/typesafehub/sbteclipse/wiki
This is just a quick proof of concept and some bindings for those wanting to use Velocity.js from Scala.js. Feel free to get in contact with any issues etc.
