Cassaforte 1.3.0-beta1 Is Released


Cassaforte is a Clojure client for Apache Cassandra 1.2+. It is built around CQL 3 and focuses on ease of use. You will likely find that using Cassandra from Clojure has never been so easy.

1.3.0-beta1 is a milestone release that introduces one minor feature and upgrades Cassandra Java driver.

Changes between Cassaforte 1.2.x and 1.3.0-beta1

Extra Clauses Support in insert-batch

It is now possible to use extra CQL clauses for every statement in a batch insert (e.g. to specify TTL):

(cql/insert-batch "table"
  {:something "cats"}
  [{:something "dogs"} (using :ttl 60)])
