Reactive microservices is an Typesafe Activator Template completely devoted to microservices architecture. It lets you learn about microservices in general - different patterns, communication protocols and 'tastes' of microservices. All these concepts are demonstrated using Scala, Akka, Play and other tools from Scala ecosystem. For the sake of clarity, we skipped topics related to deployment and operations. To feel comfortable while playing with this template, make sure you know basics of Akka HTTP which is a cornerstone of this project. We recently released an Akka HTTP activator template that may help you start. At least brief knowledge of Akka remoting, Akka persistence, Akka streams and Play Framework websockets is also highly recommended.
