This guide covers configuring ruby projects on semaphore. If you’re new to semaphore we recommend reading the guided tour first.

Hello world

The following Semaphore configuration file compiles and executes a Scala program:

# .semaphore/semaphore.yml

version: v1.0
name: Using Scala in Semaphore
    type: e1-standard-2
    os_image: ubuntu1804
  - name: Choose version
      - name: Choose Scala version
          - checkout
          - sem-version scala 2.12
          - scala hello.scala

The contents of the Scala program are as follows:

// hello.scala

object HW {
    def main(args: Array[String]) {
      println("Hello World!")

Scala Play example project

Semaphore provides a tutorial and demo Play application with a working CI pipeline that you can use to get started quickly:

Supported Scala versions

The supported Scala versions via the Ubuntu1804 image are:

  • 2.11.11
  • 2.12.6

Changing Scala version

You can choose the Scala version to use with the help of the sem-version utility

Choosing Scala version 2.11 can be done with the following command:

sem-version scala 2.11

In order to go back to Scala 2.12, which is the default version of the Semaphore Virtual Machine, you should execute the following command:

sem-version scala 2.12

Dependency management

You can use Semaphore's cache tool to store and load any files or Scala libraries that you want to reuse between jobs.

System dependencies

Scala projects might need packages like database drivers. As you have full sudo access on each Semaphore 2.0 VM, you are free to install all required packages.
