Top 6 Scala Concurrency Projects

  • Akka

    Build highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM

    Project mention: Carl Hewitt has died [pdf] | | 2023-01-06
  • ZIO

    ZIO — A type-safe, composable library for async and concurrent programming in Scala

    Project mention: 40x Faster! We rewrote our project with Rust! | | 2023-01-30

    The one advantage Rust has over Scala is that it detects data races at compile time, and that's a big time saver if you use low level thread synchronization. However, if you write pure FP code with ZIO or Cats Effect that's basically a non-issue anyway.

  • Scala Async

    An asynchronous programming facility for Scala

    Project mention: Scala Multiplatform. Across the Universe | | 2022-06-18

    Who said FP was mandatory? Scala is not Haskell, nor Lisp! If you don't like effect systems and all, don't use them. The choice is yours, actually. Kotlin's coroutines aren't better than what Scala offers. You can even use async/await in Scala. IMO, if you get yourself in a "callback hell" with Scala, then you're not using it properly. For comprehensions are easy to understand, and work with Futures, for instance.

  • incubator-pekko

    Build highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications using Java/Scala

    Project mention: Stop Building on Corporate-Controlled Languages | | 2023-01-18

    - In 2022, Lightbend changed the Akka licence, made it proprietary and very expensive at large scale

    Software that starts out as more "pure", non-corporate open-source can still turn the tables on you and charge large licensing fees later. But at least if it's open source from the start, it can be forked, e.g. for Akka, there's this Apache fork that was started after Akka changed its licence: . This is the key open source protection, and it's true for both corporate and non-corporate projects.
