    The reason I’m not currently an opaque type user as they do not play well with the tagless final style we use, though I am patiently awaiting some attention on my bug report: https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty/issues/17281

  • About Scala-Native
    4 projects | /r/scala | 13 Apr 2023
    Scala Native has much more control on how the Scala AST is compiled, and can easier workaround platform limitations, eg. lazy vals in Scala 3 required reflection config for Native Image (see this and that), while in Scala Native we could mitigate problems with unsupported usage inside in other ways within the compiler plugin.

  • scala 3 does not have :javap. Does anyone have any tips how to get around this.
    2 projects | /r/scala | 22 Feb 2023

    Ahhh no unused warnings, thats disappointing to say the least. I guess some progress is being made here https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty/pull/16157 , tbh this kind of stuff makes me want to stick to Scala 2.
