An easy way to do event-based and scheduled programming in Ruby based on libevent.
The idea, eventually, is to have asynchronous IO using Fibers which are transparent to the programmer. Originally, this was going to be called Protein (eventful fiber) which it may well end up. This is partially a learning exercise.
Happening.in 5.seconds do puts 'Later' end Happening.next do puts 'First' end Happening.run do puts 'Now' end # => "First" # "Now" # (a pause) # "Later"
- Multiple event loops
- IO notifications
- Process notifications
- Signal handling
- This is the first time I've written a C extension for Ruby, plus I'm a bit rusty at C. Please, be kind and tell me what I'm doing wrong.
