Cats STM

Build Status Join the chat at https://gitter.im/cats-stm/community Scala Steward badge

Composable in-memory transactions for Cats Effect which will handle locking, optimistic concurrency and automatic retries for you. The STM runtime takes care of acquiring locks in the correct order so your transactions are safe and should not deadlock. This locking is optimistic so it will only acquire the minimal set of locks and only when necessary to commit the result of a transaction.

For more information, see the microsite.

Example

import scala.concurrent.duration._

import cats.effect.{IO, IOApp}

import io.github.timwspence.cats.stm.__

object Main extends IOApp.Simple {

  override def run: IO[Unit] = STM.runtime[IO].flatMap(run(_))

  def run(stm: STM[IO]): IO[Unit] = {
    import stm._

    def transfer(accountForTim: TVar[Long], accountForSteve: TVar[Long]): IO[Unit] =
      stm.commit {
        for {
          balance <- accountForTim.get
          _       <- stm.check(balance > 100)
          _       <- accountForTim.modify(_ - 100)
          _       <- accountForSteve.modify(_ + 100)
        } yield ()
      }

    def giveTimMoreMoney(accountForTim: TVar[Long]): IO[Unit] =
      for {
        _ <- IO.sleep(5000.millis)
        _ <- stm.commit(accountForTim.modify(_ + 1))
      } yield ()

    def printBalances(accountForTim: TVar[Long], accountForSteve: TVar[Long]): IO[Unit] =
      for {
        t <- stm.commit(for {
          t <- accountForTim.get
          s <- accountForSteve.get
        } yield (t, s))
        (amountForTim, amountForSteve) = t
        _ <- IO(println(s"Tim: $amountForTim"))
        _ <- IO(println(s"Steve: $amountForSteve"))
      } yield ()

    for {
      accountForTim   <- stm.commit(TVar.of[Long](100))
      accountForSteve <- stm.commit(TVar.of[Long](0))
      _               <- printBalances(accountForTim, accountForSteve)
      _               <- giveTimMoreMoney(accountForTim).start
      _               <- transfer(accountForTim, accountForSteve)
      _               <- printBalances(accountForTim, accountForSteve)
    } yield ()

  }
