Play + Scalikejdbc +Postgres
Create a new project from scala seed
sbt new playframework/play-scala-seed.g8
Import in IntelliJ IDEA.
Open build.sbt and add:
Add as following
In plugin.sbt add the following
And enable the reverse plugin at build.sbt
Create a configuration file in project/scalikejdbc.properties
This configuration will allow us to create a model from existing db tables. Next step is to go a terminal (In IntelliJ IDEA there is a Terminal access on the botton, next to sbt terminal) in the root directory of your project and execute:
sbt "scalikejdbcGen messages Messages"
