Event

Provides low level cross-platform primitives for constructing event loops, with support for select, kqueue, epoll and io_uring.

Development Status

Motivation

The initial proof-of-concept Async was built on NIO4r. It was perfectly acceptable and well tested in production, however being built on libev was a little bit limiting. I wanted to directly built my fiber scheduler into the fabric of the event loop, which is what this gem exposes - it is specifically implemented to support building event loops beneath the fiber scheduler interface, providing an efficient C implementation of all the core operations.

Usage

Please see the project documentation.
