ArangoDB client written in Scala


Scarango is published to Sonatype OSS and Maven Central currently supporting Scala and Scala.js (core only) on 2.13 and 3.

Configuring the driver in SBT requires:

libraryDependencies += "com.outr" %% "scarango-driver" % "3.0.0"


Scarango uses ArangoDB's HTTP end-points providing true asynchronous and non-blocking access to the database. We utilize Scala Futures in order to handle asynchronous responses. This library has two main layers of abstraction. The first is meant to be a bare-metal wrapper around the HTTP end-points to expose the maximum capabilities of the database for use. The second layer is a higher level of abstraction to simplify management of the database while still providing flexiblity and control. In the following examples we'll focus primarily on the second layer as it's generally the preferred. However, for examples of the first layer take a look at the tests for simple and straight-forward examples of use.
