A Haskell library providing an idiomatic implementation of the actor model of concurrency
Latest commit e224c3e Aug 22, 2012 @jberryman notes cleanup


What's this all about?

simple-actors is a haskell eDSL for writing highly-structured concurrent programs based on the so-called Actor Model. It provides a far more structured way of organizing concurrent code than ad-hoc use of Chan, forkIO and MVars.

The library was designed to make easy to implement message-passing algorithms and the like, but as I work on it and learn more about distributed computing, I'm hoping it can be used across the network eventually.

How do I do it?

Install with a

cabal install simple-actors

and check out the docs here.
