Easy to use pool of concurrent workers with compute() like API.
Computer is a lightweight library for concurrent computations, which provides Flutter's compute like API.
- Easy to use API
- No overhead on creating & releasing isolates for each task. Workers initialized on start and ready to solve your tasks
- Strictly defined number of workers
Computer is no longer a singleton. If you still need a singleton solution, you can make it on your own by wrapping
Computer in your singleton
How to use #
Computer provides just 3 methods
Before using the
Computer you need to
turnOn it. This will create workers and initialize them. Then you may use
final computer = Computer(); await computer.turnOn( workersCount: 4, // optional, default 2 verbose: false, // optional, default false );
compute will execute your function inside one of the workers. Function may be
async. The callback argument must be a top-level or static method of a class.
final result = await computer.compute( fib, param: 45, // optional );
If you don't need workers anymore, you can
Computer. It will destroy workers.
