Cassaforte, a Clojure Cassandra Client
Cassaforte is a small, easy to use Clojure client for Apache Cassandra (2.0+) built around CQL 3.
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 moderately mature project. Started in June 2012, it
1.0 in July 2013 and
2.0 in December 2014. It is
known to be used by dozens of companies, small and large.
