Is Scala and Play Framework dying?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 8 Dec 2021
A minimalistic web framework. https://scalatra.org/ Good for small projects, kind of difficult to scale up. If you plan to learn something to find a job with it later, If rather bet on akka-http. But if you want to set up your own small project, it's a good choice.
Checklist for learning Scala
Find the frameworks: Scalatest, Scalatra, Sangria
Start collaborating on an open-source library: this point was a bit more complicated than I thought. Many libraries are either too big or have too many contributors already or are too advanced for a beginner or don’t have good-first-issues. I decided to settle down on Scalatra because I was already using it in my demo project.
