Thrift is a strongly-typed language-agnostic RPC system. This library is the ruby implementation for both clients and servers.


$ gem install thrift


This library provides the client and server implementations of thrift. It does not provide the compiler for the .thrift files. To compile .thrift files into language-specific implementations, please download the full thrift software package.


This section should get written by someone with the time and inclination. In the meantime, look at existing code, such as the benchmark or the tutorial in the full thrift distribution.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
