This plugin uses quill-cassandra as cql client to connect to the database.

The schema follows the akka-persistance standard to favor apps willing to migrate.

Others can simply sit on top, or fork the project to fit their custom needs.


Add the library to your project dependencies:

libraryDependencies += "io.github.prom3th3us" %% "zio-actors-cassandra-journal" % "<version>"

⚔️ Known issues

Because of zio.actors.persistence.journal.Journal plugin limitations, we cannot configure custom serializers for our events. For this reason, we decided to use jackson here. This forces us to declare nasty @JsonTypeInfo annotations on top of our event case classe for it to work, but it does the job quite good, fast and reliable.
