# Bud
This is Bud, a.k.a. "Bloom Under Development". It is an initial cut at a Bloom
DSL, using Ruby as a setting.
See LICENSE for licensing information.
Language cheatsheet in docs/cheat.md ; see the docs/ directory for other
documentation.
Main deficiencies at this point are:
- Inefficient evaluation: Programs are run using semi-naive evaluation
strategies, but no further query optimization has been implemented, and little
effort has been spent in tuning.
- No Ruby constraints: Within Bloom programs the full power of Ruby is also
available, including mutable state. This allows programmers to get outside
the Bloom framework and lose cleanliness.
- Compatibility: Bud only works with Ruby (MRI) 1.8. MRI 1.9, JRuby and other
Ruby implementations are currently not supported.
## Installation
To install the latest release:
% gem install bud
To build and install a new gem from the current development sources:
% gem build bud.gemspec ; gem install bud*.gem
Note that GraphViz must be installed.
Simple example programs can be found in examples. A much larger set of example
programs and libraries can be found in the bud-sandbox repository.
To run the unit tests:
% cd test; ruby ts_bud.rb
## Optional Dependencies
The bud gem has a handful of mandatory dependencies. It also has two optional
dependencies: if you wish to use Bud collections backed by Zookeeper or Tokyo
Cabinet (the "zktable" and "tctable" collection types, respectively), the
"zookeeper" and/or "tokyocabinet" gems must be installed. Note that before
installing the "tokyocabinet" gem, the Tokyo Cabinet libraries should be
installed first.
