Scalding is an extension that enables application development with Scala, a powerful language for solving functional problems.
Currently maintained by the Scalding community.
Cascading was created for developers who want to…
- Build Data-Intensive applications with Scala
- Simple and concise syntax
- Leverage the benefits of the Cascading application framework
More than a Scala API for Cascading, Scalding provides functionality from custom join algorithms to multiple APIs (Fields-based, Type-safe, Matrix) for developers to build robust applications.

Build Data Applications with Scala
A Scala API for Cascading, Scalding is a dynamic programming language that makes computations look very similar to Scala’s collection API.
Built with the Cascading framework
Because Scalding is built on top of the Cascading framework, this dynamic programming language inherits the value Cascading brings to app development, including: extensibility with the Cascading ecosystem and application portability.
