I love Scala but I can't stand:

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/scala

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Scala Async

    An asynchronous programming facility for Scala

    Here is your async/await ;) https://github.com/scala/scala-async

  • cats-effect

    The pure asynchronous runtime for Scala

    So limited, so many landmines, eg https://github.com/typelevel/cats-effect/issues/749

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • better-monadic-for

    Desugaring scala `for` without implicit `withFilter`s

    There is https://github.com/oleg-py/better-monadic-for/ but it's still not ideal. And Scala 3 comes with some improvements, but still leaves a lot to be deserved.

  • monadic-reflection

    I think this is the most interesting comment in the thread even though it is hidden for me by down votes. for comprehension is a pain point for Scala developers and many developers come from other languages where async await is used a lot and very successfully. There is some interesting work on this (that requires loom) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmO-f0qTRSU https://github.com/lampepfl/monadic-reflection
