Re: Graphic programming in Scala...?
Tue, 2011-12-27, 08:34
An option I'm seriously looking at at the moment is Scala + Vaadin.
I'm hosting it on Google Appengine for free.
At the moment it works fine, but i'm still learning Vaadin.
Working sample here : https://github.com/tyrcho/Le-compte-est-bon The GUI is still very rough ...

Scala's Swing library seems promising, but appears dormant (?) rather than actively developed.
I've seen references to reactive graphical programming, but these efforts seem a bit sketchy so far.
I ask because I'm a lousy GUI programmer, who needs help from a good library not to mess things up completely. (Maybe what I'm looking for is some rich, yet simple, web based GUI stuff for Scala :)
I would imagine that Scala could be a wonderful place for graphic development, but there seems to be little interest in this topic (just consider the ratio of e.g. Scala Swing related questions on the mailing lists).
