make sure you have the following in our resolver chain

resolvers += "softprops-maven" at ""

Add the following to your library dependencies

libraryDependencies += "me.lessis" %% "yoyo % "0.1.0"


The entrypoint for yoyo is a class called... Yo. In order to interact with yo you need to grab an api key from an account listed here.

All api interaction with yo happens asyncronously so an implicit ExecutionContext should be in scope.


val cli = yoyo.Yo(token)


The core use of yo is to send a "yo" to a user or to all yo users subscribed to your account

Given a name like "foo", you can yo them with

import scala.concurrent.Future
import yoyo.Delivery
val delivery: Future[Delivery] = cli.yo.user("foo")()

Alternatively you can "yo" at all of the users subscribed to the user owning a given api key

val delivery: Future[Delivery] = cli.yo.all()

If you wish to delivery more than just a "yo" you can send a link or a location in lat, lon format.

val loc: Future[Delivery] =
  cli.yo.user("foo").location(lat, lon)()

val link: Future[Delivery] = 


You can know your current subscriber count in the dev dashboard but you can also know programatically

val count: Future[Count] =


From the dev dashboard you can create new api accounts. You can also do this programatically

Before attempting to create an account you can check the username is available first

import yoyo.Exists

val exists = Future[Exists] =
  cli.account.exists("foobar") {
  case Exists.Yep =>  // it exists
  case Exists.Nope => // it does not exist

If a username does not already exist you can create a new dev account with

import yoyo.Account
val account: Future[Account] =
  cli.account.create("foobar", "passcode")()

Note, this account will show up in your dev dashboard afterwards
