Pykka (actor model implementation) and Injector (dependency injection framework) integration module

Project Description

pykka-injector is a module uniting Injector (Dependency Injection framework) and Pykka (Python implementation of the actor model). It’s only purpose is to allow you to inject dependencies into Pykka Actors.

Works with:

  • CPython 2.x >= 2.6, 3.x >= 3.2
  • PyPy >= 1.9

Platform independent.

Usage example

from injector import inject, Injector, InstanceProvider, Key, singleton
from pykka import ThreadingActor
from pykka_injector import ActorStarter

Config = Key('Config')

class MyActor(ThreadingActor):
    def __init__(self, config, user):
        self.config = config
        self.user = user

def configure(binder):

if __name__ == '__main__':
    injector = Injector(configure)
    starter = injector.get(ActorStarter)
    actor_ref = starter.start(MyActor, kwargs=dict(user='root'))

    actor_proxy = actor_ref.proxy()
    print(actor_proxy.config.get(), actor_proxy.user.get())
