If you use phantom, please consider adding your company to our list of adopters. phantom is and will always be freeware, but the more adopters our projects have, the more people from our company will actively work to make them better.
Scala 2.10 and 2.11 releases
We publish phantom in 2 formats, stable releases and bleeding edge.
The stable release is always available on Maven Central and will be indicated by the badge at the top of this readme. The Maven Central badge is pointing at the latest version
Intermediary releases are available through our managed Bintray repository available at
https://dl.bintray.com/websudos/oss-releases/. The latest version available on our Bintray repository is indicated by the Bintray badge at the top of this readme.
How phantom compares
To compare phantom to similar tools in the Scala/Cassandra category, you can read more here.
The latest versions are available here. The badges automatically update when a new version is released.
For ease of use and far better management of documentation, we have decided to export the
README.md to a proper
Wiki page, now available here.
The following are the current resources available for learning phantom, outside of tests which are very useful in highlighting all the possible features in phantom and how to use them.
This is a list of resources to help you learn phantom and Cassandra:
- [ ] Datastax Introduction to Cassandra.
- [ ] The official Scala API docs for phantom
- [ ] The main Wiki
- [ ] The StackOverflow phantom-dsl tag, which we always monitor!
- [ ] Anything tagged phantom on our blog is a phantom tutorial: phantom tutorials
- [ ] A series on Cassandra: Getting rid of the SQL mentality
- [ ] A series on Cassandra: Indexes and keys
- [ ] A series on Cassandra: Advanced features
- [ ] A series on phantom: Getting started with phantom
- [ ] The Play! Phantom Activator template
- [ ] Thiago's Cassandra + Phantom demo repository
We love Cassandra to bits and use it in every bit of our stack. phantom makes it super trivial for Scala users to embrace Cassandra.
Cassandra is highly scalable and it is by far the most powerful database technology available, open source or otherwise.
Phantom is built on top of the Datastax Java Driver, which does most of the heavy lifting.
We are very happy to help implement missing features in phantom, answer questions about phantom, and occasionally help you out with Cassandra questions! Please use GitHub for any issues or bug reports.
Some of the companies using phantom:
- Wincor Nixdorf
- Paddy Power
- Pellucid Analytics
- FiloDB - the fast analytics database built on Cassandra and Spark
License and copyright
Phantom is freeware software and uses a proprietary license that in plain English says the following:
Phantom is the intellectual property of
Outworkers, it is not provided under an OSS license.
You can use phantom in commercial products or otherwise, so long as you use one of the official versions available on Bintray or Maven Central.
You are not allowed to distribute altered copies of phantom in binary form.
You cannot offer paid for training on phantom unless you are a direct partner to
Outworkersand you have a written intellectual property agreement in place with us.
If you simply have a
build.sbtdependency on phantom, you have nothing to worry about.
All paid for features are published and sold separately as
phantom-pro, everything that is currently available for free will remain so forever.
If you would like our help with any new content or initiatives, we'd love to hear about it!
Phantom was developed at outworkers as an in-house project. All Cassandra integration at outworkers goes through phantom, and nowadays it's safe to say most Scala/Cassandra users in the world rely on phantom.
