For those of you who still use Leopard and want to use the Typesafe stack to play with Akka and Scala, follow these instructions:
1. Install brew.
1.1. If already install, update:
$ git remote add origin git://github.com/mxcl/homebrew.git $ git fetch origin $ git reset --hard origin/master $ brew update Already up-to-date. Yep, I know, you don't like git reset --hard... me neither, but believe me, this time it's Ok to do it. Afterwards: $ brew install scala sbt maven giter8 $ g8 typesafehub/play-scala And that's it, now play with Scala and the Typesafe stack.
