String#camelize Ruby Extension

Build Status Gem Version

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

Is it fast?

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

Warming up --------------------------------------
       ActiveSupport    20.000  i/100ms
        FastCamelize    74.000  i/100ms
Calculating -------------------------------------
       ActiveSupport    202.091  (± 7.4%) i/s -      1.020k in   5.081583s
        FastCamelize    974.025  (± 2.3%) i/s -      4.884k in   5.016944s

Comparison:
        FastCamelize:      974.0 i/s
       ActiveSupport:      202.1 i/s - 4.82x  (± 0.00) slower
