Snapshots Repository

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

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

Warning

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 += "Akka Snapshots" at "http://repo.akka.io/snapshots/"

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

libraryDependencies += "com.typesafe.akka" % "akka-remote_2.12" % "2.5-20170510-230859"

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_2.12</artifactId>
    <version>2.5-20170510-230859</version>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>
