String#parameterize Ruby Extension

Build Status Gem Version

fast_parameterize is a C extension that provides a fast implementation of ActiveSupport's String#parameterize method.

Is it fast?

At last check, these were the benchmarks (obtained by running bin/bench with ActiveSupport 6.1.3):

Warming up --------------------------------------
       ActiveSupport     8.000  i/100ms
    FastParameterize   131.000  i/100ms
Calculating -------------------------------------
       ActiveSupport     82.566  (± 2.4%) i/s -    416.000  in   5.042230s
    FastParameterize      1.308k (± 3.4%) i/s -      6.550k in   5.014582s

Comparison:
    FastParameterize:     1308.0 i/s
       ActiveSupport:       82.6 i/s - 15.84x  (± 0.00) slower

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'fast_parameterize'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install fast_parameterize

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test 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.
