    Futursocope is a simple library that implements futures in ruby. Futures are a concurrency pattern meant to help you deal with threads in a simple, transparent way.

    It's specially useful in situations where you have calls to an expensive resource that could be done in parallel (they are not chained), but you don't wanna deal with low-level threads. HTTP calls are a good example.

    Also useful when you want to spin up a process that runs in the background, do some stuff in the middle, and wait for that process to return.

    TomDoc is a code documentation specification that helps you write precise documentation that is nice to read in plain text, yet structured enough to be automatically extracted and processed by a machine.

  • Nov 01, 14

    An implementation of Ruby designed for concurrency using native threads to run Ruby code on all the CPU cores.

    Rubinius runs Ruby code fast with a low-pause generational garbage collector and LLVM-based just-in-time (JIT) native machine code compiler.

    The Rubinius core library and tools are built using Ruby, making a smaller, consistent system that's easier for Ruby programmers to understand and modify.

    IP-based virtual hosts use the IP address of the connection to determine the correct virtual host to serve. Therefore you need to have a separate IP address for each host.

    With name-based virtual hosting, the server relies on the client to report the hostname as part of the HTTP headers. Using this technique, many different hosts can share the same IP address.

    Name-based virtual hosting is usually simpler, since you need only configure your DNS server to map each hostname to the correct IP address and then configure the Apache HTTP Server to recognize the different hostnames. Name-based virtual hosting also eases the demand for scarce IP addresses. Therefore you should use name-based virtual hosting unless you are using equipment that explicitly demands IP-based hosting. Historical reasons for IP-based virtual hosting based on client support are no longer applicable to a general-purpose web server.
