§Building Play 2.0 from sources
To benefit from the latest improvements and bug fixes after the initial beta release, you may want to compile Play 2.0 from sources. You’ll need a Git client to fetch the sources.
From the shell, first checkout the Play 2.0 sources:
$ git clone git://github.com/playframework/Play20.git
Then go to the
Play20/framework directory and launch the
build script to enter the sbt build console:
$ cd Play20/framework $ ./build > build-repository
Once in the sbt console, run
build-repository to compile and build everything. This will also create the local Ivy repository containing all of the required dependencies.
Note that you don’t need to install sbt yourself: Play 2.0 embeds its own version (currently sbt 0.11.2).
If you want to make changes to the code you can use
publish-local to rebuild the framework.
You can run basic tests from the sbt console using the
We are also using several Play applications to test the framework. To run this complete test suite, use the
Creating projects using the Play version you have built from source works much the same as a regular Play application.
If you have an existing Play 2.0 application that you are upgrading from Play 2.0 Beta to edge, please add
resolvers ++= Seq( ... Resolver.file("Local Repository", file("<projdir>/Play20/repository/local"))(Resolver.ivyStylePatterns), ... ) addSbtPlugin("play" % "sbt-plugin" % "2.0-RC1-SNAPSHOT")
