Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Immutability by Example - Building a Purely Functional Data Validator
2 projects | /r/scala | 7 Apr 2023
Have you also considered looking at this two brilliant libraries for purely functional validation https://github.com/yakivy/dupin https://github.com/jap-company/fields ?
what library/framework should I use for backend development?
3 projects | /r/scala | 21 Feb 2023
You're not confined to the usual suggestions below (play, http4s). There's a ton of options. (I wrote test cases using a bunch of different frameworks a few years ago at https://github.com/hohonuuli/msdemos). Having written services using a variety of frameworks in production, I would strongly suggest using one that auto-generates API docs (openapi, swagger) for you. That will save you a huge amount of time later on. For heavier services, like the one at https://fathomnet.org/, I tend to the Java side (Quarkus is my current top choice, but Micronaut and Helidon are both great). For everything else I use Scala. My go-to right now is tapir using a vertx backend. See https://tapir.softwaremill.com/
Micronaut vs others(Spring Boot, Quarkus and co.)
5 projects | /r/java | 10 Nov 2022
Tapir is a Scala framework. (which runs on the JDK) Since the recent release of version 1.0, it's become my go to for many projects. It doens't provide much in the way of integrations with 3rd party frameworks, but I actually prefer that. It does autogenerate great swagger docs though.
Programming language comparison by reimplementing the same transit data app

I do wonder where the recommendation to use http4s for beginners came from. http4s is a very capable library (and if you care much about composition it is excellent), but I wouldn't describe the documentation as beginner friendly.
A slightly better starting point for scala 3 + type-safe server building is tapir e.g. https://github.com/softwaremill/tapir/blob/master/examples3/... . With that, you get a declarative definition of your endpoints (+ error types, auth, etc.) that you can use for both servers and clients, which comes very handy when writing integration tests of course.
> absolutely ridiculous the fetishization of extremely complex FP and type-level hacking that goes on in the ecosystem
An alternative way to look at it is that there is a lot of essential domain complexity that gets encoded via the type system to let the compiler do the hard work. That "extremely complex FP" does not arrive out of nowhere - I really recommend at least skimming through the slides from rossabaker, the http4s designer, that motivate where the core type signature comes from https://rossabaker.github.io/boston-http4s/#2
I suppose one of the "features" that I like about the (typelevel) community is that the approach of "worse is better" is not taken, and a lot of effort is expended to make things correct, modular and orthogonal. This has the drawback of increased upfront complexity, that anecdotally pays off the moment your compiler does not error and the program runs as intended.
Scala.js AWS Lambda, using Scala 3
6 projects | /r/scala | 13 Sep 2022
Did you try tapir? There is a module for deploying aws lambda with Scala js. Not sure whether it is compatible with Scala 3, I am sticking with Scala 2 until Scala 3 gets more mature.
4 projects | /r/scala | 9 Sep 2022
I'm aware, but it's a design decision that was made on purpose, and which I find in practice not a big problem at all.4 projects | /r/scala | 9 Sep 2022
In any case I strongly suggest to have a look at Tapir which will make your life a bit easier and allow you to swap the HTTP backend in the future if needed.
Monorepo: seeking for an advice for bi-lang project

Backend is source of truth for types on frontend (backend generated OpenAPI definition with tapir, frontend takes it with orval)

2 projects | /r/scala | 3 Jul 2022
In all cases I would strongly suggest to have a look at Tapir, regardless of the server implementation that you pick.
Resources for learning about http4s and Typelevel ecosystem?
3 projects | /r/scala | 2 Feb 2022
Finally I would strongly recommend having a look at Tapir. Even if you don't need to share endpoints or generate OpenAPI documentation, it provides a really neat abstraction on top of http4s.
