Celluloid is a framework for building asynchronous and multithreaded Ruby programs using object-oriented concepts.
Revival Process Underway
Celluloid is in the process of being refactored and released back into the wild during
Google Summer of Code. The next era will not have one individual active maintainer, but a team of collaborators. Going forward, previously dormant maintainer Donovan Keme is returning to support future primary maintainer Emese Padányi during
GSoC 2020. Her plan extends past the Summer program, and aims to revive the community and codebase of
Celluloid together. Backing this process are Harsh Deep and
GSoC alumni Dilum Navanjana. We welcome your collaboration and contributions in this massive work.
The codebase is being refactored to pursue a stable release with no deprecation warnings, and with this cleaned up:
