Modern Web Template

AngularJS - Scala - Play - Guice - PlayReactiveMongo

A full application stack for a Modern Web application, lets review the components:

  • AngularJS - client side javascript framework for creating complex MVC applications in Javascript, fronted with Twitter bootstrap CSS framework, because well, im not a web designer.

    • Take a look at what the google cool kids are upto here : AngularJS
  • Bootstrap - Bootstrap components written in pure AngularJS

  • CoffeeScript - CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way.

  • PlayFramework - currently using 2.3.9 with the scala API

  • Guice integration for Dependency injection,

    • Special thanks to the typesafehub team for their activator : Play-Guice
  • PlayReactiveMongo gives interaction with MongoDB providing a non-blocking driver as well as some useful additions for handling JSON.

Getting Started

Your development environment will require:

  • SBT / Play see here for installation instructions.
  • MongoDB see here for installation instructions.

Once the prerequisites have been installed, you will be able to execute the following from a terminal.

../modern-web-template >  sbt run

This should fetch all the dependencies and start a Web Server listening on localhost:9000

[info] Loading project definition from ../modern-web-template/project
[info] Set current project to modern-web-template
[info] Updating modern-web-template...
[info] Done updating.

--- (Running the application from SBT, auto-reloading is enabled) ---

[info] play - Listening for HTTP on /0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:9000

(Server started, use Ctrl+D to stop and go back to the console...)

Note: This will create a MongoDB Collection for you automatically, a freebie from the Driver!
