Scala Documentation Repository at Launched!

We're happy to announce the launch of the Scala Documentation repository, at The Scala Documentation repository is meant to serve as a centralized home to grow and develop Scala documentation within, including:

  • Guides
  • Overviews
  • Tutorials
  • The Glossary from "Programming in Scala"
  • Cheatsheets
  • Scala Improvement Process documents
  • The Scala Style Guide
It was designed so it would be easy for core committers and the community alike to contribute and evolve documentation.To that aim, the entire site is available on GitHub, at, so contributing documentation (small or large) is as simple as submitting your document (written in Markdown) as a GitHub pull request.

For more information on contributing, please see A number of people have already contributed to the site, thanks to Josh Suereth, Dave Copeland, Daniel Spiewak, Bill Venners, Brendan O'Connor, Simon Ochsenreither, and others.


Re: Scala Documentation Repository at ...

Awesome idea! Scala in general seems to lack good free tutorials and books which go beyond the basic examples. This is a good start. Examples for each class and method in the API would also be a great idea (hint hint, to anyone reading this). Currently some of the scala docs are a bit sparse, so I find myself repeatedly visiting to make sense of how your API's work.

 Great work!


It will be useful to clean up the scala website and just point to this page. The outdated pages give a wrong impression about the language.
