Asynchronous Programming for Scala and Scala.js.
Monix is a high-performance Scala / Scala.js library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs, exposing high-level types, such as observable sequences that are exposed as asynchronous streams, expanding on the observer pattern, strongly inspired by ReactiveX and by Scalaz, but designed from the ground up for back-pressure and made to cleanly interact with Scala’s standard library, compatible out-of-the-box with the Reactive Streams protocol.
- exposes the kick-ass
- modular, only use what you need
- the base library has no third-party dependencies
- strives to be idiomatic Scala and encourages referential transparency, but is built to be faster than alternatives
- designed for true asynchrony, running on both the JVM and Scala.js
- really good test coverage and API documentation as a project policy
- it’s a Typelevel project
Download and Usage
The packages are published on Maven Central.
- Current 2.x release:
2.3.0(download source archive)
In SBT (use the
%%% for Scala.js):
libraryDependencies += "io.monix" %% "monix" % "2.3.0"
Monix 2.0 is modular by design, so you can pick and choose:
- monix-execution: the low-level execution environment, or more precisely
- monix-eval: for controlling evaluation by means of
Coevaland primitives built on them
- monix-reactive: async
- monix: provides all of the above
- monix-cats: exposes Typelevel Cats type-class instances, see the intro
- monix-scalaz-72: exposes Scalaz type-class instances, see the intro
