Scala Language Setting up Scala Mac OSX via Macports


On Mac OSX computers with MacPorts installed, open a terminal window and type:

port list | grep scala

This will list all the Scala-related packages available. To install one (in this example the 2.11 version of Scala):

sudo port install scala2.11

(The 2.11 may change if you want to install a different version.)

All dependencies will automatically be installed and your $PATH parameter updated. To verify everything worked:

which scala

This will show you the path to the Scala installation.


This will open up the Scala REPL, and report the version number installed.
