Async

Async is a composable asynchronous I/O framework for Ruby based on nio4r and timers.

"Lately I've been looking into async, as one of my projects – tus-ruby-server – would really benefit from non-blocking I/O. It's really beautifully designed." janko

Features

  • Scalable event-driven I/O for Ruby. Thousands of clients per process!
  • Light weight fiber-based concurrency. No need for callbacks!
  • Multi-thread/process containers for parallelism.
  • Growing eco-system of event-driven components.

Usage

Please see the project documentation.
