Introduction

Remember you must die

memento-mori is a library for writing robust, actor-based systems in Common Lisp. It draws inspiration from Erlang/OTP, particularly its crash-first approach to high-availability systems, as well as Akka. memento-mori works under the assumption that whatever you do, you will eventually crash, and thus the best way to keep a system running is to try to limit the damage and recover.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
