Emacs Power for Scala Development: Testing

Continuing the series of posts exploring applying the power of Emacs to Scala development, this edition explores finding and running tests for your Scala classes from within Emacs.

The Emacs-for-Scala project has a couple of custom functions that make jumping to the test file corresponding to a current file easy, and launching and running SBT from within a test file easy as well. In this short video we’ll see how to do both of these.

I again recommend opening the video up to full screen mode to see the text most clearly.

You can find the key-bindings referred to in the video here: Emacs for Scala Keybindings
