HTML5 with Vaadin & Scala
This small app demonstrates how Vaadin allows server side Scala programmers to harness the power of HTML5. It was developed for a presentation given at Devoxx 2011.
The app is written in Scala, and it creates a simple Vaadin UI that contains a HTML5 Canvas animating the Conway's Game of Life. The animation is implemented with the Refresher add-on that periodically pulls the UI state from the server to the browser.
The project is written in Eclipse with the assistance of Vaadin and Scala IDE plug-ins. In addition to these you need a servlet container, eg. Tomcat, Jetty or similar.
