Queue to the Future!
An easy way to create asynchronous execution paths in an unobtrusive way. Queue to the Future uses a managed pool of workers to keep overhead to a minimum.
require "queue_to_the_future" # returns immediately result = Future("list", "of", "args") do |*args| sleep(1) args.join(" ") end # blocks until completed puts result #=> "list of args"
