Name        : pykka
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 0.15
Release     : 2.fc16
URL         : http://pykka.readthedocs.org/
Summary     : Python library that provides concurrency using actor model
Description :
The goal of Pykka is to provide easy to use concurrency abstractions for Python
by using the actor model.

Pykka provides an actor API with two different implementations:

 * ThreadingActor is built on the Python Standard Library’s threading and Queue
   modules, and has no dependencies outside Python itself. It plays well
   together with non-actor threads.
 * GeventActor 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. It is generally faster, but
   doesn’t like playing with other threads.

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.
