This project was started in December 2012 out of frustration about the (then) lack of non-blocking Scala (or Java) client libraries for Riak. The first public version (0.8.0) was released in March 2013 after several early beta releases were tested internally to get feedback from external users on a commercial project. The current version is 0.8.1.1.
riak-scala-client has been tested on single machine Riak installations and small(ish) clusters of up to 7 nodes. There might be some minor API changes on the way towards 1.0 but things should be pretty stable overall. So please go ahead and try it out or even battle test it in production as long as you are aware that the paint is still drying.
riak-scala-client is available from the Maven Central and Sontatype Releases repositories. The current version is 0.8.1.1 and currently it is only available for Scala 2.10.x.
You can add riak-scala-client to your SBT project by including the following dependency:
libraryDependencies += "com.scalapenos" %% "riak-scala-client" % 0.8.1.1
Or if you prefer Maven, you can add riak-scala-client to your Maven project by including the following dependency:
<dependency> <groupId>com.scalapenos</groupId> <artifactId>riak-scala-client_2.10</artifactId> <version>0.8.1.1</version> </dependency>
Next, head on over to the documentation section, which describes everything else you need to get started.
The following Riak API features still have to be implemented:
Other things that are on the roadmap for 1.0:
If you think anything is missing from the above lists, please go ahead and let us know by creating an issue or a pull request!
Feedback is always good so please go ahead and fork the project, file issues (or complaints), create pull requests, star the project on GitHub, or loudly proclaim your (dis)approval on a mailing list of your choice (riak-users would be a good one to start with).
