So, I’ve decided to contribute an Activator Template to TypeSafe (will submit soon, promise!). Having recently become more and more involved in Elasticsearch, I saw a great opportunity to put together a neat “reactive” application combining Play & Akka with the “bonsai cool” percolation feature of Elasticsearch. Then, to put a cherry on top, use AngularJS on the client-side to create a dynamically updating UI.
What I came up with is slightly contrived – a very basic real-time log entry search tool – but I think it provides a really nice base for apps that want to integrate this bunch of technologies.
