Scala Ant Builder proposal
Thu, 2010-08-26, 19:30
I really love simplicity of Ant. None of current replacements suits me
(yes I know SBT)
So I am going to write Scala frontend for Ant. It should be Scala
script which would replace Ant's build.xml.
Inspiration is Groovy Ant Builder:
It will have very similar syntax to Ant. Scala supports XML literals,
so it may be even drop-in replacement.
For migration you would need very simple conversion tool (or even just
rename 'build.xml' to 'build.scala')
It should be also possible to mix 'Ant style syntax' with Scala normal
code (if, foreach etc).
Thats all for now. Will keep you updated. Any help would be welcomed.
