We’re making it easier and simpler for developers to get started with Lightbend technologies. This unfortunately means that future releases of Play, Akka and Scala will no longer include Activator support, and Lightbend’s Activator server will be decommissioned by the end of 2017.

Instead of using the Activator command, make sure you have sbt 0.13.13 (or higher), and use the “sbt new” command, providing the name of the template. For example, “$ sbt new akka/hello-akka.g8”. You can find a list of templates here.
Also, as a convenience, the Lightbend Project Starter allows you to quickly create a variety of example projects that you just unzip and run.
Apache Spark (http://spark.apache.org/) is a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing. This Typesafe Activator template demonstrates Apache Spark (http://spark.apache.org) for data streaming with Scala and Akka using the Spark Streaming (http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/streaming-programming-guide.html) extension.
The bundle includes a small bootstrap script that
can start Activator. To start Lightbend Activator's UI:
In your File Explorer, navigate into the directory that the template was extracted to, right-click on the file named "activator.bat", then select "Open", and if prompted with a warning, click to continue:
