Silhouette Slick Seed Template

This is a fork of the official Silhouette Seed project. If you want to have a first look at Silhouette, I suggest you have a look at the official project.

The Silhouette Seed project is an Activator template which shows how Silhouette can be implemented in a Play Framework application. It's a starting point which can be extended to fit your needs. It uses the play-slick library for database access.

Consulate the Silhouette documentation for more information. If you need help with the integration of Silhouette into your project, don't hesitate and ask questions in our mailing list or on Stack Overflow.


The template stores all authentication information in a database via Slick It uses an in memory H2 database by default.

In order to use another database supported by Slick, you need to change the driver in your application.conf and add the corresponding JDBC driver to your dependencies. The Play Slick documentation has more information about database configuration.
