0.3.0 was just released. This release contains mostly updates, but also notable changes in the build of almond, that can be of interest to you!
There were some minor binary incompatible changes in those, justifying the minor version bump here.
One-liner to run from sources
The previous "run from sources" instructions relied on publishing almond locally, then generating a coursier boostrap to run the locally published artifacts. This was a bit cumbersome overall, requiring running commands both inside sbt and outside of it.
The almond build now defines sbt tasks making it more practical. These allow to run almond from sources in just one command, like
$ sbt jupyterStart shell
See the install from sources page for more details.
New front page
The almond website now has a shiny new front page. It draws inspiration from the numerous docusaurus users out there, most notably the scalameta projects. Thanks to them!
almond-spark for scala 2.12
almond-spark module is now published for scala 2.12, so that one can rely on it from an almond kernel running scala 2.12, when using spark 2.4.0.
Docker images for almond, based on official Jupyter images, are now automatically generated and pushed upon each Almond release. These are based on previous work by @Atry, and live in this repository.
For example you can run almond
$ docker run -it --rm -p 8888:8888 almondsh/almond:0.3.0
Then copy the token from the Jupyter logs, and head to
