How to switch back and forth between Play! Framework Versions

Posted by Brian Porter on March 05, 2013

When I first read about the Play Version Manager I first thought it was some sort of tool for versioning.

When Play! Framework 2.1.0 came out, I finally realized that it was a tool for switching back and forth between various Play! Framework versions.

So download the Play Version Manager from github:

You can do things like “pvm use 2.1.0” or “pvm use 2.0.4“.

Here are some of the supported commands:


$ pvm [tab][tab]
alias          copy-packages  help           
list           run            uninstall      
version        clear-cache    deactivate     
install        ls             unalias        

So, download it, and give it a try.
