Welcome to ZIO News, your community-powered newsletter dedicated to ZIO and its ecosystem.
The biggest news of this edition is that ZIO HTTP has been donated to the ZIO Organization. 🙏 Thanks to the amazing work of Tushar Mathur, Amit Singh, and the Dream 11 Engineering Team.
With the recent news of AKKA going closed source, we have witnessed the ZIO community pouring lots of resources into ZIO HTTP for a stable release.
Big thank you to Adam Fraser, John A. De Goes, Daniel Vigovszky, Bill Frasure, Scott Weaver, Adrian Filip, Gabriel Ciuloaica, and others.
What else are we going to do now when AKKA moved closed source?
Migrate to ZIO!
We have prepared akkaalternatives.com
with a 50-page whitepaper on Safe Migration From Akka to ZIO
. This Ebook is a hands-on, useful launching point for the contemplation of migration from Akka to ZIO and its eventual execution.
Additionally, kudos to Pierre Ricadat and his team for open-sourcing replacement for Akka cluster sharding: shardcake!
Shardcake is a Scala open-source library that makes it easy to distribute entities across multiple servers and interact with those entities using their ID without knowing their actual location.
It exposes a purely functional API and depends heavily on ZIO Ecosystem.
