Scala adoption continues to surge and now the community has a scalable WebRTC server designed specifically for Scala environments.

We’re thrilled to support Nextwave in making WebRTC more consumable for Scala developers - Mark Brewer, CEO Typesafe

Nextwave Software has released a key live media streaming library for the Scala community with its new Walkabout WebRTC server. Nextwave will be offering this new server for free and offering paid support tiers for usage and integration starting this fall.

“Scala adoption continues to surge and now the community has a scalable WebRTC server designed specifically for Scala environments,” said Nextwave CEO Christopher Boothroyd. “Adding WebRTC to the Scala arsenal is going to disrupt many current media streaming and collaboration technology solutions. We have been refining this solution for our own Walkabout Smart Messaging service and now it is time to offer that expertise and robustness to the Scala Community. The response from the Scala and WebRTC communities has been overwhelmingly positive.”

The Walkabout WebRTC server is offered as a Typesafe Activator template. For developers this means a simple command will install the template and all dependencies required to get up and running a WebRTC server in fewer than five minutes.

“This new WebRTC release is unique because of its completely non-blocking and asynchronous websocket support and integration with Akka to allow serious scalability,” said Corey Auger, CTO of Nextwave. “This connection can easily be adapted to support further API needs for the provider.”

With the release of Walkabout WebRTC Server, Nextwave believes that Scala, Akka and Play Framework (aka, the Typesafe Reactive Platform) have new momentum for supporting the scale of media delivery, whether video chat, game networking, webcasting, or other mediums.

“We’re thrilled to support Nextwave in making WebRTC more consumable for Scala developers,” said Mark Brewer, CEO of Typesafe. “Real-time content delivery and keeping data flowing while limiting the resources that are consumed is a key focus area for the Typesafe Reactive Program, and we’ll continue to seek out partners and advocates who share that vision.”
