What is Groovy?
Who uses Groovy?
Why developers like Groovy?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Groovy in their tech stack.
Some may wonder why did we choose Grails ? Really good question :) We spent quite some time to evaluate what framework to go with and the battle was between Play Scala and Grails ( Groovy ). We have enough experience with both and, to be honest, I absolutely in love with Scala; however, the tipping point for us was the potential speed of development. Grails allows much faster development pace than Play , and as of right now this is the most important parameter. We might convert later though. Also, worth mentioning, by default Grails comes with Gradle as a build tool, so why change?
This app uses SQLite to store internal data and is superfast, especially good to use with Android JetPack framework like Room. Gradle is good for managing the dependencies and Groovy script enables some advanced configuration.
