We believe that Akka Streams can be the tool for building a modern alternative to Apache Camel. That will not happen by itself overnight and this is a call for arms for the community to join us on this mission.

This is the initial release of Alpakka modules. Alpakka focuses on connectors to external libraries, integration patterns and data format conversions. Connectors that fall under this category have been moved here from Akka Stream Contrib and released with the new artifact and package names. From now on Akka Stream Contrib is going to focus only on Graph Stages that require no additional dependencies.

Don’t hesitate to get involved! A good first step for such contributions is to create an issue for your favorite integration, vote, or comment on existing issues.

We would also like to see links in the Alpakka documentation to existing integration libraries that provide Reactive Streams or Akka Streams API. Please create a pull request updating the external-connectors.md page.

You can find more information about Alpakka and practical advice of how to build integration components with Akka Streams in our Integrations blog post series.
