Today we are going to make Hello World project based on Play Framework 2.5 on OS X
I'm getting back to Play Framework again and I'm going to build simple start project.
1. Checking if Java is installed
Make sure you have java installed.
If java is installed you will see message like that:
java version "1.8.0_45" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)
2. Installing Typesafe activator (current version is 1.3.12)
brew install typesafe-activator
3. Let's create a new project
activator new hello-world
Activator will ask you what template you want to use for new project? (I used play-java).
1) minimal-akka-java-seed 2) minimal-akka-scala-seed 3) minimal-java 4) minimal-scala 5) play-java 6) play-scala
That will create a java project for us
Now let's run it. Go into newly create project and run activator
That will run our project and up server as well. You can access project by localhost:9000
