Triplequote Hydra is the only Scala compiler that parallelizes compilation across all available compute cores, speeding up compilation time by an average of 3.2x, and providing orders of magnitude faster return-on-productivity. Hydra requires no code changes, and also includes compile-time monitoring for easy pinpointing of bottlenecks.
Modern developer machines typically have four or more cores, but the open-source Scala compiler is limited to working with a single core. Hydra splits compilation across all available cores, from a simple laptop to enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure. Through the partnership, Lightbend customers will have the option to include a Hydra license with their Lightbend Reactive Platform subscriptions.
Key Hydra features include:
- Multi-core, parallel compilation
- Consolidated dashboard for monitoring
- Integration and ecosystem friendly
