Pykka

The goal of Pykka is to provide easy to use concurrency abstractions for Python by using the actor model.

Pykka is built on the gevent library. gevent is a coroutine-based Python networking library that uses greenlet to provide a high-level synchronous API on top of libevent event loop.

Much of the naming in Pykka is inspired by the Akka project which implements actors on the JVM. Though, Pykka does not aim to be a Python port of Akka.
