Scala Documentation

This repository contains the source for the Scala documentation website, as well as the source for "Scala Improvement Process" (SIP) documents.


Please have a look at before making a contribution. This document gives an overview of the type of documentation contained within the Scala Documentation repository and the repository's structure.

Small changes, or corrected typos will generally be pulled in right away. Large changes, like the addition of new documents, or the rewriting of existing documents will be thoroughly reviewed-- please keep in mind that, generally, new documents must be very well-polished, complete, and maintained in order to be accepted.


Jekyll is required. Follow the install instructions at the Jekyll documentation site. Since this site is hosted on github pages, make sure you have whatever version of Jekyll that github is running. As of the writing of this README, that is version >= 1.0.x.

Building & Viewing

cd into the directory, and build by:

jekyll serve

The generated site is available at http://localhost:4000

If you get incompatible encoding errors when generating the site under Windows, then ensure that the console in which you are running jekyll can work with UTF-8 characters. As described in the blog Solving UTF problem with Jekyll on Windows you have to execute chcp 65001. This command is best added to the jekyll.bat-script.


The markdown used in this site uses Maruku extensions.

Markdown Editor for OSX

There exists a free markdown editor for OSX called Mou. It's quite convenient to work with, and it generates the translated Markdown in real-time alongside of your editor window, as can be seen here:
