Cassaforte is a small, easy to use Clojure client for Apache Cassandra (recent releases: currently 1.2 and 2.0), part of the ClojureWerkz libraries.
For quickstart, please refer to our Getting Started with Clojure and Cassandra guide.
- Provide a Clojure-friendly, easy to use API that reflects Cassandra's data model well. Dealing with the Cassandra Thrift API quirks is counterproductive.
- Be well maintained.
- Be well documented.
- Be well tested.
- Target modern Cassandra and Clojure releases.
- Integrate with libraries like Joda Time.
- Support URI connections to be friendly to Heroku and other PaaS providers.
Cassaforte is a relatively young project. It took about a year to
1.0. It is used heavily in a monitoring and event collection
solution that processes fairly large amount of data.
Cassaforte artifacts are released to Clojars. If you are using Maven, add the following repository
definition to your
<repository> <id>clojars.org</id> <url>http://clojars.org/repo</url> </repository>
<dependency> <groupId>clojurewerkz</groupId> <artifactId>cassaforte</artifactId> <version>1.3.0-beta10</version> </dependency>
- Connection to a single node or a cluster
- All CQL operations
- CQL 3.0 queries, including queries with placeholders (?, a la JDBC)
- Nice CQL query DSL for Clojure
- Automatic deserialization of column names and values according to the schema
Cassaforte supports Clojure 1.4+.
Cassaforte is built from the ground up for CQL. Cassaforte 1.2 targets Cassandra 1.2.x Cassaforte 1.3 and later versions target Cassandra 2.x.
API reference is also available.

CI is hosted by travis-ci.org
Cassaforte uses Leiningen 2. Make sure you have it installed and then run tests against all supported Clojure versions using
lein2 all test
Then create a branch and make your changes on it. Once you are done with your changes and all tests pass, submit a pull request on Github.
