You can print the plan to get detailed info on what will happen during instantiation. The printout includes file:line info so your IDE can show you where the binding was defined!

val plan = Injector().plan(module)



You can also query a plan to see the dependencies and reverse dependencies of a specific class and their order of instantiation:

// Print dependencies
// Print reverse dependencies


The printer highlights circular dependencies.

distage also uses some macros to create TagKs and function bindings, you can turn on macro debug output during compilation by setting -Dizumi.distage.debug.macro=true java property:

sbt -Dizumi.distage.debug.macro=true compile

Macros power distage-static module, an alternative backend that does not use JVM runtime reflection to instantiate classes and auto-traits.

GraphViz Dump


Sorry, this page is not ready yet

Add GraphDumpBootstrapModule to Injector’s configuration to enable printing of graphviz files with graph representation of the Plan.

val injector = Injector(new GraphDumpBootstrapModule())

Files will be saved to ./target/plan-last-full.gv and ./target/plan-last-nogc.gv

Use command-line:

dot -Tpng target/plan-last-nogc.gv -o out.png

To render GraphViz files into a viewable PNG image. You need GraphViz installed on your system.
