Akka HTTP microservice example

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/theiterators/akka-http-microservice

This project demonstrates the Akka HTTP library and Scala to write a simple REST (micro)service. The project shows the following tasks that are typical for most Akka HTTP-based projects:

  • starting standalone HTTP server,
  • handling file-based configuration,
  • logging,
  • routing,
  • deconstructing requests,
  • unmarshalling JSON entities to Scala's case classes,
  • marshaling Scala's case classes to JSON responses,
  • error handling,
  • issuing requests to external services,
  • testing with mocking of external services.

The service in the template provides two REST endpoints - one which gives GeoIP info for given IP and another for calculating geographical distance between given pair of IPs. The project uses the service ip-api which offers JSON IP and GeoIP REST API for free for non-commercial use.

Deploy to Heroku

Usage

Start services with sbt:

$ sbt
> ~re-start

With the service up, you can start sending HTTP requests:

$ curl http://localhost:9000/ip/8.8.8.8
{
  "city": "Mountain View",
  "query": "8.8.8.8",
  "country": "United States",
  "lon": -122.0881,
  "lat": 37.3845
}
$ curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' http://localhost:9000/ip -d '{"ip1": "8.8.8.8", "ip2": "93.184.216.34"}'
{
  "distance": 4347.624347494718,
  "ip1Info": {
    "city": "Mountain View",
    "query": "8.8.8.8",
    "country": "United States",
    "lon": -122.0881,
    "lat": 37.3845
  },
  "ip2Info": {
    "city": "Norwell",
    "query": "93.184.216.34",
    "country": "United States",
    "lon": -70.8228,
    "lat": 42.1508
  }
}

Testing

Execute tests using test command:

$ sbt
> test
