Today Koddi is excited to announce the initial release of our own Scala Geocoding library. Here at Koddi, we value open source projects that allow small organizations to grow quickly and hope this project can return the favor for other developers out there!
A few may be asking why we chose to write our own library for something as simple as Geocoding. When we were researching libraries to use, we noticed a lack of high-quality Scala geocoding libraries. There are some available<, but most of them never really caught our eye, so we set out to write a clean, lightweight library that any Scala programmer can use.
Before building the library, we had some clear-cut objectives: No 3rd-party dependencies, fully tested, compliant with the Google Geocoding API including tertiary parameters, and easy enough to use that developers would want to adopt this library. The Koddi Geocoder accomplishes all of these goals and some additional features we were able to roll in afterward. Let’s dive in and take a look at some usage examples.
