sync-defer Build Status

by Lin Jen-Shin (godfat)

DESCRIPTION:

Synchronous deferred operations with fibers (coroutines)

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Either eventmachine or cool.io
  • Ruby 1.9+ (or if fibers could be used in Ruby 1.8)

INSTALLATION:

gem install sync-defer

SYNOPSIS:

Remember to wrap a fiber around the client, and inside the client:

  • Generic interface which would select underneath reactor automatically:

        # Single computation:
        puts(SyncDefer.defer{
                               sleep(5) # any CPU-bound operations
                               100})    # 100
        puts "DONE"
    
        # Multiple computations:
        puts(SyncDefer.defer(lambda{
                               sleep(5) # any CPU-bound operations
                               100
                             },
                             lambda{
                               sleep(2) # any CPU-bound operations
                               50}))    # [100, 50] # it would match the index
        puts "DONE"

    Full examples with reactor turned on:

  • with eventmachine:

        EM.run{
          Fiber.new{
            # or EM::SyncDefer
            SyncDefer.defer{ sleep(5) }
            puts "DONE"
            EM.stop
          }.resume
        }
  • with cool.io:

        # only for adding at least one watcher in the loop
        Coolio::TimerWatcher.new(1).
          attach(Coolio::Loop.default).on_timer{detach}
    
        Fiber.new{
          # or Coolio::SyncDefer
          SyncDefer.defer{ sleep(5) }
          puts "DONE"
        }.resume
        Coolio::Loop.default.run
  • No problems with exceptions, use them as normal:

        EM.run{
          Fiber.new{
            begin
              SyncDefer.defer{ raise "BOOM" }
            rescue => e
              p e
            end
            EM.stop
          }.resume
        }
