RxGroovy: Reactive Extensions for Groovy

This is a Groovy adapter to RxJava.

This adaptor allows 'groovy.lang.Closure' functions to be used and RxJava will know how to invoke them.

This enables code such as:

  Observable.just("one", "two", "three")
    .subscribe({arg -> println(arg)})

Master Build Status


Since RxGroovy is part of the RxJava family the communication channels are similar:


RxGroovy 1.0.x is based on RxJava 1.0.x. As of 1.0.0 semantic versioning will be used.
