Expand description

Actor library built on top of the Tokio platform.

Kabuki provides a simple way to structure concurrent applications built for the Tokio / Futures platform. It is based on the actor model. An actor is a small unit of computation that is used to manage state and resources. It receives messages from other actors and performs some kind of action based on that input. This way, instead of having state and resources accessed concurrently, only a single thread access it and concurrent access is handled through message passing.


Tokio and Futures provide a lightweight task primitive. However, it leaves the details of managing concurrency up to the developer.




  • A value that manages state and responds to messages


  • Returns an Actor backed by the given closure.
