I wanted to ask for an update on the commitment of Lightbend and the Scala Center to Scala.js?
It seems to me we have only just begun to explore the potentially huge impact Scala can have on the still-chaotic world of Web development – there is just such a lot of work to be done to get it to work with all the popular frameworks starting with React and Angular. I find most companies have invested so much time in certain Web frameworks that they don’t want to move to Scala.js without seeing specific support.
Looking at the scala-js project on Github, my impression is that it is under healthy development but could use more manpower. Is Lightbend willing to “put its money where is mouth is”? In terms of funding it feels like projects like Spark and Play are given preferential treatment while extending Scala.js – surely just as relevant to the enterprise – is left to unsupported third parties like Li Haoyi and David Barri. I would love to be able to persuade more clients to use Scala.js, but it is hard without a clear signal from Lightbend.
