Open-source Scala projects categorized as Distributed Systems

Top 16 Scala Distributed System Projects

  • Akka

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

  • Project mention: Modern Async Primitives on iOS, Android, and the Web | | 2023-12-06

    Kotlin also has a construct for asynchronous collections/streams. Kotlin's version of AsyncSequence is called a Flow. Just as Swift's AsyncSequence builds upon prior experience with RxSwift and Combine, Kotlin's Flow APIs build upon earlier stream/collection APIs in the JVM ecosystem: Java's RxJava, Java8 Streams, Project Reactor, and Scala's Akka.

  • Finagle

    A fault tolerant, protocol-agnostic RPC system

  • Project mention: Features of Project Loom incorporated in Java 21 | | 2023-08-15

    Not sure about now but a few years back the company I worked for was heavily vested in Finagle [1] using Future pools. I'm sure virtual threads would only enhance this framework. Also, Spring and it's reactive webflux would probably benefit as well [2].



  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • pekko

  • Project mention: Is akka still worth learning to be employable? | /r/scala | 2023-12-07

    Pekko is open source, has the same API. So there's no problem there.

  • CurioDB
