Yrb is a Ruby binding for Y-CRDT. It provides distributed data types that enable real-time collaboration between devices. Yrb can sync data with any other platform that has a Y-CRDT binding, allowing for seamless cross-domain communication.
The library is a thin wrapper around Yrs, taking advantage of the safety and performance of Rust.

gem system --update
# creates a new document and text structure local = Y::Doc.new local_text = local.get_text("my text") # add some data to the text structure local_text << "hello" # create a remote document sharing the same text structure remote = Y::Doc.new remote_text = remote.get_text("my text") # retrieve the current state of the remote document remote_state = remote.state # create an update for the remote document based on the current # state of the remote document update = local.diff(remote_state) # apply update to remote document remote.sync(update) puts remote_text.to_s == local_text.to_s # true
Make sure you have
