Docker image for Scala and Play with different version.
Full Description

Scala and Play framework Docker Image


  1. Dockerhub: ysihaoy/scala-play
  2. Docker image for Scala, Play framework and SBT project with different versions

Supported tags (combinations of Scala, Play and SBT) and Dockerfile links

How to use in your Scala SBT project

  1. Choose a image tag, e.g 2.12.3-2.6.2-sbt-0.13.15 is highly recommended instead of latest version

  2. Sample of your minimal project structure

    │   build.sbt
    │   Dockerfile
    |       plugins.sbt
    │   │   ...
  3. Sample of your Dockerfile should be like:

    FROM ysihaoy/scala-play:2.12.2-2.6.0-sbt-0.13.15
    # caching dependencies
    COPY ["build.sbt", "/tmp/build/"]
    COPY ["project/plugins.sbt", "project/", "/tmp/build/project/"]
    RUN cd /tmp/build && \
     sbt compile && \
     sbt test:compile && \
     rm -rf /tmp/build
    # copy code
    COPY . /root/app/
    WORKDIR /root/app
    RUN sbt compile && sbt test:compile
    EXPOSE 9000
    CMD ["sbt"]

Optimisation of the build time

In order to have fast CI (continuous integration) build process, sample of your project/, project/plugins.sbt and build.sbt should be like:

  1. project/

    sbt.version = 0.13.15
  2. project/plugins.sbt

    // The Play plugin
    addSbtPlugin("" % "sbt-plugin" % "2.6.0")
  3. build.sbt

    scalaVersion := "2.12.2"

Note: Since activator was EOL-ed on May 24, 2017, instead of using the Activator command, make sure you have sbt 0.13.13 (or higher), and use the “sbt new” command, providing the name of the template. Click here to see more.
