will listen to the source directory and then automatically recompile
the code when it detects file changes.
We’ve also installed the sbt-jetty-embed plugin which allows us to create a war which has Jetty embedded so that we can keep our application containerless.

What we actually needed to launch the application locally and edit
code/see changes as if it’s written in a dynamic language was the
