Project

Commercial Support

Commercial support is provided by Lightbend. Akka is part of the Lightbend Reactive Platform.

Source Code

Akka uses Git and is hosted at Github.

Releases Repository

All Akka releases are published via Sonatype to Maven Central, see search.maven.org or search.maven.org (Akka versions before 2.4.3)

Snapshots Repository

Nightly builds are available in https://repo.akka.io/snapshots/ as both SNAPSHOT and timestamped versions.

For timestamped versions, pick a timestamp from https://repo.akka.io/snapshots/com/typesafe/akka/akka-actor_2.11/. All Akka modules that belong to the same build have the same timestamp.

sbt definition of snapshot repository

Make sure that you add the repository to the sbt resolvers:

resolvers += "Lightbend Snapshots" at "https://repo.akka.io/snapshots/"

Define the library dependencies with the timestamp as version. For example:

libraryDependencies += "com.typesafe.akka" % "akka-remote_2.11" %
  "2.1-20121016-001042"

maven definition of snapshot repository

Make sure that you add the repository to the maven repositories in pom.xml:

<repositories>
  <repository>
    <id>akka-snapshots</id>
    <name>Akka Snapshots</name>
    <url>http://repo.akka.io/snapshots/</url>
    <layout>default</layout>
  </repository>
</repositories>

Define the library dependencies with the timestamp as version. For example:

<dependencies>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.typesafe.akka</groupId>
    <artifactId>akka-remote_2.11</artifactId>
    <version>2.1-20121016-001042</version>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>
