Installation

The package can be installed by adding astra to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
  [
    {:astra, "~> 0.1.0"}
  ]
end

To connect to Astra add something like the following to your config.exs.

For username and password authentication:

config :astra,
  id: System.get_env("ASTRA_ID"), #this is your astra cluster id
  region: System.get_env("ASTRA_REGION"), #this is the region where your astra cluster is hosted
  username: System.get_env("ASTRA_USERNAME"),
  password: System.get_env("ASTRA_PASSWORD")

For static application tokens:

config :astra,
  id: System.get_env("ASTRA_ID"), #this is your astra cluster id
  region: System.get_env("ASTRA_REGION"), #this is the region where your astra cluster is hosted
  application_token: System.get_env("ASTRA_APPLICATION_TOKEN") # this is and application security token for your database

For non-astra stargate backends replace id and region in the config with the stargate url, example:

config :astra,
  url: https://my.stargate.endpoint/api/,
  application_token: System.get_env("ASTRA_APPLICATION_TOKEN") # this is and application security token for your database
