Thread Inheritable Attributes

Passes thread variables to child spawned threads. Main use case is enabling logging in child thread to keep context of a request. State only flows in one direction into the child threads and not back.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "thread-inheritable_attributes"

request_store is a dependency for when working within the context of a multi-threaded web server. In that context Threads can be reused for different request causing state from a previous request to stick around to the next request. Unless your are manually reinitializing or clearing the state in your own Rack Middleware (at the start of a request) it is recommended that you also include the request_store gem.

If using Rails no config is required, except including the gem. When using other Rack based frameworks see docs for including middleware.

gem "request_store"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install thread-inheritable_attributes

Usage

require "thread/inheritable_attributes"

Thread.current.set_inheritable_attribute(:request_id, SecureRandom.uuid)

thread = Thread.new {
          Thread.current.get_inheritable_attribute(:request_id)
        }
thread.join
thread.value
  #=> "80f58e0f-0564-487d-8f92-4cff8237af24"

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
