Using Activator

Activator is the Typesafe Reactive Platform's build and tutorial tool

Start Activator's UI

In your File Explorer, navigate into the directory which the zip was extracted to, then:

  • right-click on the file named "activator.bat"
  • Select "Open"
  • If prompted with a warning, click to continue

This will start the UI in your browser, from there you can:

  • Start a tutorial
  • Create a new application
  • Import an existing app

Use Activator from the command line

Add Activator to your PATH to have the command available in your cli.

Create a new project from the command line:

Run an existing project from its directory:

 C:\Users\projects\> activator run 

Enter the interactive cli (within a project directory):
