Much of the naming of concepts and methods in Pykka is taken from the Akka project which implements actors on the JVM. Though, Pykka does not aim to be a Python port of Akka, and supports far fewer features.

What Pykka is not

Notably, Pykka does not support the following features:

  • Supervision: Linking actors, supervisors, or supervisor groups.
  • Remoting: Communicating with actors running on other hosts.
  • Routers: Pykka does not come with a set of predefined message routers, though you may make your own actors for routing messages.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
