Getting Started

# or
$ yarn add @actorize/core
import {
} from '@actorize/core';

const director = createDirector({
  store: createStore(),

const actorOne = director.registerActor('one');

Plugin System

the most basic plugin is the logging plugin. This can be helpful to see when what actor send what.

import { createDirector, createStore, createLogPlugin } from '@actorize/core'

 // logs into 'debug' with "[ACTORIZE] ({{sender}}) => ({{recipient}}), {{payload}}"
const logPlugin = createLogPlugin()

// you have the option to filter too.
// this would only log messages from the actor named "ui"
// createLogPlugin({ filter: (msg) => msg.sender === 'ui'  })

const director = createDirector({
  store: createStore(),
  plugins: [logPlugin]

interface ActorizePlugin {
  onMessage?: (msg: Message) => Message,
