Welcome to the Pronghorn documentation page! This GitBook contains everything needed to get started with Pronghorn.
The actor model in computer science is a mathematical model of concurrent computation that treats "actors" as the universal primitives of concurrent computation. In response to a message that it receives, an actor can: make local decisions, create more actors, send more messages, and determine how to respond to the next message received.
Pronghorn is a pragmatic approach to an actor based framework. It is a staged event driven single machine embedded micro-framework written in Java, designed to be garbage-free with a small memory footprint.
The JavaDoc for every major Pronghorn-related project is listed below:
For a project built completely with Pronghorn, there is GreenLighting, an incredibly fast & lightweight microservices framework.
