Tart core scheduling


Actor-based core scheduling for guest configurations

To run the below example run:

npm run readme
"use strict";
var host = require('../index.js');
var core = require('tart');
var tart = require('tart-stepping');
var coreSponsor = core.minimal();
var configA = tart.stepping();
var configB = tart.stepping();
var configC = tart.stepping();
var eventLoopA = coreSponsor(host.adapter(configA, configA.eventLoop));
var eventLoopB = coreSponsor(host.adapter(configB, configB.eventLoop));
var eventLoopC = coreSponsor(host.adapter(configC, configC.eventLoop));
var scheduler = coreSponsor(host.eventLoopRing([
    { eventLoop:eventLoopA, options:{ count:1 } }, 
    { eventLoop:eventLoopB }, 
    { eventLoop:eventLoopC, options:{ count:2 } }
Create an actor behavior that counts down to zero,
printing labelled messages to the console log.
var countdown = function countdown(label) {
    return function countdownBeh(count) {
        console.log(label, count);
        if (--count > 0) {
var countdownA = configA.sponsor(countdown('.O.|.|.'));
var countdownB = configB.sponsor(countdown('.|.O.|.'));
var countdownC = configC.sponsor(countdown('.|.|.O.'));
scheduler();  // start scheduler 
npm test

Create an actor behavior that calls a synchronous object method using message.arguments as the argument list and sending the return value to message.ok. If an exception is thrown, it is sent to

Create an actor behavior that cycles through a list of guest configurations, dispatching one event at a time until no events remain.

Create an actor behavior that cycles through a list of guest configurations, calling eventLoop(options) for each until all event queues are exhausted.
