Fibers, Channels and Actors for Clojure
Pulsar wraps the Quasar library with a Clojure API that's very similar to Erlang.
Java 7 and up and Clojure 1.5 and up are required to run Pulsar.
Add the following dependency to Leiningen's project.clj:
Then, the following must be added to the project.clj file:
:java-agents [[co.paralleluniverse/quasar-core "0.7.3"]]
or, add the following to the java command line:
Alternatively, to build Pulsar from the source, clone the repository and run:
You can run the examples like this:
lein -o run -m co.paralleluniverse.pulsar.examples.pingpong
For benchmarks, you should use
lein trampoline, like so:
lein trampoline run -m co.paralleluniverse.pulsar.examples.ring-benchmark 1000 1000
Documentation and examples can be found here.
You can also read the introductory blog post.
When running code that uses Pulsar, the instrumentation agent must be run by adding the following
java command line
or to the
:jvm-opts section in project.clj:
