sttp is a family of Scala HTTP-related projects, and currently includes:
- sttp client: The Scala HTTP client you always wanted!
- sttp tapir: Typed API descRiptions
- sttp model: this project. Simple Scala HTTP model. Used by sttp client & sttp tapir
Quickstart with sbt
Add the following dependency:
"com.softwaremill.sttp.model" %% "core" % "1.4.11"
sttp model is available for Scala 2.11, 2.12, 2.13, 3.0.0, Scala.JS and Scala Native.
Available model classes include:
- body fragments:
- header values:
Most classes contain both serialisation & parsing functionality, following these conventions:
.toStringreturns a representation of the model class in a format as in an HTTP request/response. For example, for an uri this will be
http://..., for a header
[name]: [value], etc.
[SthCompanionObject].parse(serialized: String): Either[String, Sth]: returns an error message, or an instance of the model class
[SthCompanionObject].unsafeApply(values): creates an instance of the model class; validates the input values and in case of an error, throws an exception. An error could be e.g. that the input values contain characters outside the allowed range
[SthCompanionObject].safeApply(...): Either[String, Sth]: same as above, but doesn't throw exceptions. Instead, returns an error message, or the model class instance
[SthCompanionObject].apply(...): Sth: creates the model type, without validation, and without throwing exceptions

Or, if you encounter a bug, something is unclear in the code or documentation, don’t hesitate and open an issue on GitHub.
Building & testing the scala-native version
By default, sttp-native will not be included in the aggregate build of the root project. To include it, define the
STTP_NATIVE environmental variable before running sbt, e.g.:
You might need to install some additional libraries, see the scala native documentation site.
We offer commercial support for sttp and related technologies, as well as development services. Contact us to learn more about our offer!
