SACK - SMACK without Mesos

This project is a kind of PoC to develop simple flows with (eventually) Spark, Akka, Cassandra, and Kafka.

Here is the default components of the repo;

  • Confluent Platform stack
  • scala-kafka-client for kafka interaction
  • akka-http for api endpoint
  • circe for decoding
  • shapeless for csv to model conversion
  • avro4s and sbt-avro4s for avro schema

A step-by-step multi node installation manual can be found at this guide.

There are multiple projects under the root.

  • In api project, there are rest endpoints to take products inside.
    • An http layer to post products to http topic that is also consumed by cassandra sink connector to the products table.
    • For the large json products content, you can encode the content with Content-Transfer-Encoding header set to gzip.
java -jar api/target/scala-2.11/api.jar


$ sbt project api
$ sbt runMain com.ferhtaydn.http.WebServer
  • In csv project, a simple flow of messages processing is simulated. Consuming a topic, some validation, and producing to the another topic.
    • simple csv file is consumed by Kafka FileStreamSource connector to a raw topic,
    • each line is tried to be converted to a Product class,
    • successful records are consumed by cassandra sink connector to the products table,
    • invalid lines are stored in a failure topic to be able to investigate later
java -jar csv/target/scala-2.11/csv.jar
  • In examples project, there are binary and avro formatted messages used with scala-kafka-client.

  • Common code for all other projects is placed under the core project.
