Typesafe Activator is a browser-based tool, built on the Typesafe Stack, with reusable templates that are linked to in-context tutorials for jump-starting Reactive Application Development Services. Just download, extract and run the executable to start building applications immediately via the easy to use wizard-based interface.
The Typesafe Reactive Development Platform is a JVM-based runtime and toolset consisting of Play Framework, Akka, and Scala that allows you to build systems that are event-driven, scalable, resilient and responsive; ready to be deployed on multicore and cloud computing architectures.
“The Typesafe Reactive Platform helps us maintain a very aggressive development and deployment cycle, all in a fail-forward manner. It’s now the default choice for developing all new services.”
Peter Hausel, VP Engineering, Gawker Media
