digitalmars.D.announce - Dakka: Actors for D
- Rikki Cattermole (27/27) Jul 12 2014 Alright so, I've just finished Dakka's exception support.
Alright so, I've just finished Dakka's exception support. Functionality supported: Local actor references Remote node connections, using given ip/port Remote actor calling On start/stop/error support Capabilities per node (can this node do x? if not which can do to create a reference?) Seemless integration of both actor references to actors Singleton (controller classes) actor support per node, works with AllActorRefs for calling them e.g. sequentially, or until a return value. At this point, I'm entering it into maintenance. What this means is I cannot myself expand on its functionality e.g. adding encryption. However if anybody wants to, please do. This is what I need, I've tried to make it as flexible as possible and inline with how akka works, but as I'm not the most adapt in it. Please feel free on drawing up a wanted feature list. There will be issues with threading, so if anyone is more skilled at it and understands Vibe's workers feel free pointing that out. For anybody interested, the code itself isn't well documented (I'll get back to it when I have time). But the actual overall design should be fairly documented. The protocol and life cycle can be found on the wiki.  https://github.com/rikkimax/dakka  https://github.com/rikkimax/dakka/wiki  https://github.com/rikkimax/dakka/wiki/Protocol  https://github.com/rikkimax/dakka/wiki/LifeCycleOfObjects
