How to Set Up a Playdate Between Scala, Thrift, Scrooge, SBT and Intellij
By Nick Isaacs

Here at VictorOps, we are going through the process of overhauling the serialization framework that we use for inter and intra process communication. We evaluated several great options including Kryo (and its Scala companion Chill), Protobuffers, and Thrift.

In the process, we put together a little test project to help us decide which of these choices was right for us. Testing Thrift posed some challenges as the tooling, while quite mature, wasn’t quite as plug-n-play with our local development environment as we would have liked. The following instructions assume a basic knowledge of the Scala/SBT framework, Thrift, and (optionally) Intellij.

What is needed:

Steps:

1. Create a new project with a build.sbt file and add the following lines:

libraryDependencies ++= Seq( "org.apache.thrift" % "libthrift" % "0.8.0", "com.twitter" % "scrooge-core_2.11" % "3.17.0" )

com.twitter.scrooge.ScroogeSBT.newSettings unmanagedSourceDirectories in Compile += baseDirectory.value / "target" / "scala-2.11" / "src_managed"

This will add the Thrift and Scrooge dependencies to your sbt project.

2. If you do not already have a project/plugins.sbt file, create one and add the following line:

addSbtPlugin("com.twitter" % "scrooge-sbt-plugin" % "3.14.1")

3. Create a new directory to hold your Thrift files (by default, Scrooge will check in src/main/thrift, which worked fine for us)

4. Define some Thrift files, if you want, here is a simple example:

namespace java com.example.thrift.java
#@namespace scala com.example.thrift.scala

typedef list<string> friendList

struct NastyCaseClass {
1: string firstName,
2: string lastName,
3: bool ownsPetOtter,
6: friendList listOfFriends,
}

5. By default, Intellij marks everything in the target/ directory as ‘excluded’ for builds. We are gonna have to do something about that.

  • Open up the “project structure” window & click “modules in the right hand menu

  • Click on the name of your project, you should see the directory structure appear

  • Click “target” and uncheck “Excluded”

  • Expand “target” and mark all subfolders as “Excluded” except for scala-version.no

  • Expand “scala-version.no” and mark all folders as “Excluded” except for “src_managed” which you should mark as “Source”

6. Run an SBT clean, scrooge-gen, and compile. All generated files should now be visible to both SBT and Intellij (hooray for syntax highlighting)

Hope this helps anyone in a similar situation. Another thing to note was that updating *.thrift files would cause SBT to become a bit “unhappy”. To rectify this, simply run a scrooge-gen and a clean after making edits.

Happy serializing  :)

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that beyond the hype, digital transformation initiatives are infusing IT budgets with critical investment for technology. This is shifting the IT organization from a cost center/center of efficiency to one that is strategic for revenue growth. CIOs are working with the new reality of cloud, mobile-first, and digital initiatives across all areas of their businesses. What's more, top IT talent wants to w...
