ZIO Kinesis

ZIO Kinesis is a ZIO-based AWS Kinesis client for Scala.


ZIO Kinesis is an interface to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams for consuming and producing data. This library is built on top of ZIO AWS, a library of automatically generated ZIO wrappers around AWS SDK methods.


In order to use this library, we need to add the following line in our build.sbt file:

libraryDependencies += "nl.vroste" %% "zio-kinesis" % "0.20.0"


This is an example of consuming a stream from Amazon Kinesis:

import nl.vroste.zio.kinesis.client.serde.Serde
import nl.vroste.zio.kinesis.client.zionative.Consumer
import zio.clock.Clock
import zio.console.{Console, putStrLn}
import zio.duration._
import zio.logging.Logging
import zio.{ExitCode, URIO, _}

object ZIOKinesisConsumerExample extends zio.App {
val loggingLayer: ZLayer[Any, Nothing, Logging] =
( ++ >>>
Logging.console() >>>

override def run(args: List[String]): URIO[zio.ZEnv, ExitCode] =
streamName = "my-stream",
applicationName = "my-application",
deserializer = Serde.asciiString,
workerIdentifier = "worker1",
checkpointBatchSize = 1000L,
checkpointDuration = 5.minutes
)(record => putStrLn(s"Processing record $record"))
.provideCustom(Consumer.defaultEnvironment ++ loggingLayer)
