sbt-notifytest: libnotify autotesting for Scala with Specs I'm using Scala with simple-build-tool and Specs. In Ruby, there is a tool called ZenTest autotest which does what sbt ~ test does (i.e. runs a test loop every time you save a file). It has one main advantage which is that it can use Growl (the OS X notification library) to tell you whether your tests have passed or failed. This is the only way I find that I can do TDD - having to alt-tab all day and inspect the output isn't fun. And IDEs are just... no way. Vim or TextMate^WSciTE please. sbt-notifytest is a Python script which invokes `sbt "~ test"` and monitors the output. It offers three types of libnotify notification - either "Tests pass", "Compilation failed; tests didn't run" or "Tests fail". Unlike the Growl version, we use the standard GNOME icons for errors and information. They are a bit dull, but they work. Dependencies: Python 2.4+, libnotify, pynotify The original is sbt-growltest which uses OS X's Growl: http://github.com/tommorris/sbt-growltest
