Finatra Logo

Finatra is a lightweight framework for building fast, testable, scala applications on top of TwitterServer and Finagle. Finatra provides an easy-to-use API for creating and testing Finagle servers and apps as well as powerful JSON support, modern logging via SLF4J, Finagle client utilities, and more.

Getting involved



To get started, see the Getting Started section of our User Guide to get up and running. Or check out the specific sections for building HTTP or Thrift servers.


An HTTP controller and server:

import com.twitter.finatra.http._

class ExampleController extends Controller {
  get("/") { request: Request =>
    "<h1>Hello, world!</h1>"
import com.twitter.finatra.http._

class ExampleServer extends HttpServer {
  override def configureHttp(router: HttpRouter): Unit = {

A Thrift controller and server:

import com.twitter.finatra.thrift._

class ExampleThriftController 
  extends Controller
  with MyThriftService.BaseServiceIface {
  override val myFunction = handle(MyFunction) { args: MyFunction.Args =>
import com.twitter.finatra.thrift._

class ExampleServer extends ThriftServer {
  override def configureThrift(router: ThriftRouter): Unit = {

Example Projects

Finatra includes working examples which highlight various features of the framework and include tests. These examples are included in the root sbt build and are thus buildable as part of the entire project.

Please take a look through the examples for more detailed information on features, testing, building, and running.
