Asking questions#

If you have a question about using ScalaPB you are welcome to contact us over ScalaPB Gitter channel.

If you prefer email or less-interactive contact, you can post to ScalaPB's Google Group.

If you believe the question (or its answer) might be beneficial to many users consider posting it on Stack Overflow and tag it with scalapb. @thesamet (the main author) gets notified when that happen.

If you have found a bug or have a feature request, please search our open Github issues, and if it is a new bug feel free to post a new issue. When posting a new issue, please describe what are you trying to do, what you expect it to do, and what unexpected things happen. Provide as much detail as possible and include all relevant code so it is possible for us to reproduce the issue.

Providing minimal reproducible example#

Depending on the case, you may be asked to provide a minimal reproducible example that demonstrates the issue. This means that the maintainers are unable to tell what is going on without additional context. To save time, the additional context provided need to be kept to a minimum. To accomplish that, provide a small sbt project that includes only the relevant plugins and settings, and the minimal code, minimal amount of proto files, messages and field that are needed to demonstrate the problem. Include instructions on how to run the project so the problem can be exhibited. This makes it much easier for a maintainers to identify a bug and propose a solution or a workaround.

You can use the ScalaPB sbt template to quickly generate a minimal project:

sbt new scalapb/scalapb-template.g8
