Featherbed aims to be a typesafe, functional REST client API over Finagle. It provides a friendlier approach to building REST client interfaces in Scala. Currently, Featherbed is in the early stages of development, and includes the following modules:

  1. featherbed-core - the functional client interface
  2. featherbed-circe - automatic JSON request encoding and response decoding using circe

The following modules are planned:

  1. featherbed-oauth - OAuth authenticated requests


To get started with featherbed, check out the Guide.


Featherbed aims to have a minimal set of dependencies. Besides finagle-http, the core project is dependent only on shapeless and cats.

featherbed-circe depends additionall on circe
