nact ⇒ node.js + actors

your services have never been so µ

Nact is redux but for the server.

Servers today are very different from those even 10 years ago. So why are we still programming like it's the 90s?

Inspired by the approaches taken by Akka and Erlang, nact is an open source Node.js framework which enables you to take control of your state to:

  • more effectively use memory
  • improve application resiliance
  • increase performance
  • reduce coupling

With out of the box support for event sourcing, and a considered implementation of the actor model, nact can work across a wide variety of domains.

Nact is no silver bullet, but it is evolving to tackle ever more demanding use cases. Perhaps one of them is yours?

Getting Started

Both the ReasonML and JS libraries are 1st class citizens. This means 100% unit test coverage, full documentation and support by project maintainers.

Learning the ins and outs of the framework should not take more than an evening. The hello world example in particular should take less than 15 minutes.
