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.
