Test    Kantox ❤ OSS    One more unnecessary abstraction on top of Agent


Agency is an abstraction layer above Agent allowing to use any container supporting Access behind and simplifying the client API handling.

Agency itself implements Access behaviour, making it possible to embed instances in the middle of Access.keys chains.

In a nutshell, Agency backs up the Agent holding a container. All the standard CRUD-like calls are done through containers’ Access implementation, allowing transparent shared access.

The set of after_***/1 functions are introduced, so that the main Agent feature distinguishing it from the standard GenServer holding state—namely, a separation of client and server APIs—is exposed transparently to the consumers.


def deps do
    {:agency, "~> 0.1"}


  • 0.3.1 Agency.Multi support is not optional anymore
  • 0.3.0 Agency.Multi supporting the locally distributed agency (eliminating :gen_server mailbox bottleneck)
