Scala Style Guide


This document is intended to outline some basic Scala stylistic guidelines which should be followed with more or less fervency. Wherever possible, this guide attempts to detail why a particular style is encouraged and how it relates to other alternatives. As with all style guides, treat this document as a list of rules to be broken. There are certainly times when alternative styles should be preferred over the ones given here.

Thanks to

Daniel Spiewak and David Copeland for putting this style guide together, and Simon Ochsenreither for converting it to markdown.
