Scala can be used for developing both frontend (Scala.js) and backend (Scala JVM) applications. A missing piece has been bridging these two worlds using Scala. We built Airframe RPC, a framework that uses Scala traits as a unified RPC interface between servers and clients. With Airframe RPC, you can build HTTP/1 (Finagle) and HTTP/2 (gRPC) services just by defining Scala traits and case classes. It simplifies web application design as you only need to care about Scala interfaces without using existing web standards like REST, ProtocolBuffers, OpenAPI, etc. Scala.js support of Airframe also enables building interactive Web applications that can dynamically render DOM elements while talking with Scala-based RPC servers. With Airframe RPC, the value of Scala developers will be much higher both for frontend and backend areas.
