future-resource.gemspec [UPDATE] Dependencies


future-resource allows you to wait on a final value being set for a placeholder, which may occur asynchronously.


gem install future-resource


require 'future-resource'

fr = do
  sleep 10
  fr.resource = :foo

p fr.set_yet?
p fr.resource

You will see false printed first, followed by a delay before :foo is printed


Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history.
    • If you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself so I can ignore when I pull
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
