  • Actix Actor Framework v0.11 has been released
    1 project | | 21 Mar 2021
    Check out the change log:
  • Actor model (with time?)
    3 projects | | 11 Mar 2021
    I've looked at actix, bastion and riker, but it seems like only actix has some notion of time in terms of duration / interval / delay (which is not really helpful?..).
  • Lunatic - An Erlang inspired runtime for all programming languages

    We don't have all details worked out yet, but as you mentioned, it would not come in the form of "run any code and we will be able to hot-reload it". You would need to use higher level constructs. Similar to how Erlang/Elixir builds the hot code reloading on top of GenServers that wrap a particular state, we would have language specific libraries. E.g in Rust we could have a higher level library similar to actix ( where you define a struct that hold your state and spawn a process from it. In this case you would be able to point to the struct say "this is all the data".
