New App Roundup
Enhancing Scala Strings and Bringing Ring Support To Netty
Enhance Your Scala Strings
A new compiler plugin for adding variable interpolation and other features to Scala's string literals, has been released.
With this plugin, users can access variables from the inside of strings and evaluate Scala expressions. There is also a special syntax for formatting and reducing the lists inside of a string and conditional string formatting for boolean and scala.Option values.
Ring Gets Netty Support
Ring-Netty-Adapter does exactly what it says on the tin, adding Netty support to Ring. The project's github also provides some demos, which are the same as the ones in the Ring repository, but use Netty as the backend server instead of Jetty.
