Scala Question

Up to date async http client for Scala?

I think

dispatch
was the preferred one a few years ago. But it seems this project has been idle for a while and have some out standing bugs left. I am wondering if the Scala community has moved on to some other async http client tool.

Akka has also released its akka-http-core. But bootstrapping a Actor system just for an async. client is too much, in my opinion. (Maybe it is not?)

You are right dispath is not maintained. You should choose from spray-client and Play WS Client. Both of them are great.
