CircleCI Bintray

A lightweight Scala wrapper around Kinesis Producer Library (KPL).

The main benefit of this library is working with Scala-native Futures when interacting with KPL.

Here is a simple app that initializes the Kinesis producer and sends a string message.

import com.amazonaws.auth.DefaultAWSCredentialsProviderChain
import com.contxt.kinesis.ScalaKinesisProducer
import java.nio.ByteBuffer
import scala.concurrent.Await
import scala.concurrent.duration._

object Main {
  def main(args: Array[String]): Unit = {
    val producerConfig = new KinesisProducerConfiguration()
      .setCredentialsProvider(new DefaultAWSCredentialsProviderChain)

    val producer = ScalaKinesisProducer("myStream", producerConfig)

    val sendFuture = producer.send(
      partitionKey = "myKey",
      data = ByteBuffer.wrap("myMessage".getBytes("UTF-8"))
    Await.result(sendFuture, 10.seconds)
    Await.result(producer.shutdown(), Duration.Inf)
