      Scalatra (we had to pick Sinatra on StackShare since Scalatra is has not yet been officially added) is the slickest (not to be confused with Slick for Scala) web/applet server framework we've had the pleasure of playing with in Scala.

      For all intensive purposes, Scalatra is the Scala version of Sinatra (which for anyone who doesn't know is a Ruby web server DSL).

      Serves static content. Was added to make it more easy to transition to serverside view templating and API.

      We use Sinatra a lot. I love Sinatra for APIs. It's really simple, really lightweight. It's awesome.
