SSWG-0021: Swift Cassandra Client

The review of SSWG-0021: Swift Cassandra Client begins now and runs for two weeks, until February 2nd, 2023.

Reviews are an important part of the Swift Server Work Group incubation process . All review feedback should be either on this forum thread or, if you would like to keep your feedback private, directly to the review manager (via email) or direct message in the Swift forums).

The package is being proposed in Incubating maturity level, given it's long and successful use inside Apple. Please note the Maturity Justification inside the proposal for details.

The previous pitch thread is here: [Pitch] Swift Cassandra Client

What goes into a review of a proposal?

The goal of the review process is to improve the proposal under review through constructive criticism and, eventually, become listed on the Swift Server Ecosystem index page.

When reviewing a proposal, here are some questions to consider:

  • What is your evaluation of the proposal and its APIs/implementation?
  • Is the problem being addressed relevant for the wider Swift on Server ecosystem?
  • Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of the Swift Server ecosystem?
  • If you have used other libraries in Swift or other languages, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
  • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

+1 one to this. It's a great addition to the Swift server ecosystem

As @0xTim mentioned in the pitch thread I would prefer this being proposed at sandbox level. It does not cover a number of the criteria for incubating level.

  • It doesn't have a stable API
  • It only has one user who is successfully using it in production (albeit a rather important one).

I imagine these will be overcome very quickly and the project can move up to incubating at that point.
