Project description

🌀 Pykka

Pykka makes it easier to build concurrent applications.

CI Docs Coverage PyPI

Pykka is a Python implementation of the actor model. The actor model introduces some simple rules to control the sharing of state and cooperation between execution units, which makes it easier to build concurrent applications.

For a quickstart guide and a complete API reference, see the documentation.


Pykka requires Python 3.6 or newer.

Pykka is available from PyPI:

python3 -m pip install pykka

If you need support for Python 2.7 or 3.5, you can use Pykka 2.
