Quill - Compile-time Language Integrated Query for Scala

Flávio Brasil-2

Quill provides a Quoted Domain Specific Language (QDSL) to express queries in Scala and execute them in a target language. The library's core is designed to support multiple target languages and the current version features support for Structured Language Queries (SQL).

example

  1. Boilerplate-free mapping: The database schema is mapped using simple case classes.
  2. Quoted DSL: Queries are defined inside a quote block. Quill parses each quoted block of code (quotation) at compile time and translates them to an internal Abstract Syntax Tree (AST)
  3. Compile-time SQL generation: The db.run call reads the quotation's AST and translates it to the target language at compile time, emitting the SQL string as a compilation message. As the query string is known at compile time, the runtime overhead is very low and similar to using the database driver directly.
  4. Compile-time query validation: If configured, the query is verified against the database at compile time and the compilation fails if it is not valid.
