An actor based programming framework
Pypes provides a framework for building component oriented architectures. It falls under the paradigm of Flow-Based Programming in which applications are defined as networks of “black box” processes, which exchange data across predefined connections called ports. These black box processes can be reconnected endlessly to form different applications without having to be changed internally. The concept is very similar, if not identical, to that of Unix pipes.
Pypes is designed to build applications in a more data centric manner where data flow is more prominent than control flow.
