Akka Discuss Forums
A chat room is available for all questions related to developing and contributing to Akka:
Akka uses Git and is hosted at Github akka/akka.
All Akka releases are published via Sonatype to Maven Central, see search.maven.org
Snapshot builds are available at https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/com/typesafe/akka/. All Akka modules that belong to the same build have the same version.
The use of Akka SNAPSHOTs, nightlies and milestone releases is discouraged unless you know what you are doing.
sbt definition of snapshot repository
Make sure that you add the repository to the sbt resolvers:
resolvers ++= Resolver.sonatypeOssRepos("snapshots")
Define the library dependencies with the complete version. For example:
libraryDependencies += "com.typesafe.akka" % "akka-remote_2.13" % "2.6.14+72-53943d99-SNAPSHOT"
Maven definition of snapshot repository
Make sure that you add the repository to the Maven repositories in pom.xml:
<repositories> <repository> <id>oss-sonatype</id> <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url> <layout>default</layout> <snapshots> <enabled>true</enabled> </snapshots> </repository> </repositories>
Define the library dependencies with the timestamp as version. For example:
<dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.typesafe.akka</groupId> <artifactId>akka-remote_2.13</artifactId> <version>2.6.14+72-53943d99-SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency> </dependencies>
