Create and manage sbt process using unicorns and forks - For development chit-chat only
@all: I am planning to start a online tutorial for scala. I want a feature where the user able to edit & compile code snippets from browser like what a fiddle. I also want the ability for the user to see the compile time output (like what activator does), intermediate code generated etc. Which is a suitable library to do this? I looked at sbt-launcher but I am not sure if that is exactly the tool I want. Any pointers will be helpul
hey @all. I am currently building sbt support for visual studio code and have been playing around with sbtrc. It seems like there is not much activity here anymore. Is this project still alive?
@martinring Well, it's still the best place I think, but the future is largely in @eed3si9n 's hands. We migrated investment of time into modularization over server, and there's agood bit of issues still in scala pickling which make this project interesting
Is there a way of using sbt-remote-control from IntelliJ to kick off a build? I'm using sbt for both scalajs and scala-on-android, and having to alt-tab to my sbt window a million times a day to start a build is getting old...
Not sure intellij uses sbt-remote-control....
Nah it doesn't, I was wondering if someone had jerry-rigged something. Alternatively, can I use sbt-remote-control from the command line? If so I can make IntelliJ call a shell script or something.
Command line is still pretty flaky
Last I hacked, still had some issues where, for some reason, we lost control of jline/input
Probably a concurrency bug, but couldn't isolate it
Ok, no probs - just thought I'd check where things were. I don't have any time to contribute to the project, sorry, so I'll live with the alt-tabbing.
If I did want to have a play with command line, are there any docs or wiki on this?

You can use sbt from the terminal within IntelliJ which already defaults to your project directory at login. Which is what I currently do. Alternatively there is an SBT plugin that brings up a forced-sbt REPL but it's rather buggy. I'd be interested in having better support for sbt in IntelliJ via sbt-remote-control so if anyone could point me in a direction where I could start to help make that happen it would be awesome.
