Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
EventMachine Performance Spikes

The Async gem is the natural successor, It's actively maintained, and allows you write synchronous code is if it wasn't non-blocking, and most libraries don't need any special support for Async (exceptions are gems with C extensions that do I/O and DB libraries with connection pooling that would otherwise be thread-based).
Philosophy of Coroutines

https://github.com/socketry/async uses coroutines and I think in general it’s been a great model with very few downsides in practice.

There's async I/O. Here's a library that leans on Ruby 3's fiber scheduler.
Show HN: Goru, an experimental, Go-inspired concurrency library for Ruby
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Apr 2023
Hey folks, wanted to show this off and get feedback. Still early/experimental but there are quite a few concepts I'm excited about here. This project came about while writing a program in Go and loving its approach to concurrency. Being a long-time Rubyist I immediately started to think about what similar concepts might look like in Ruby.
I set out with two main design constraints:
1. Lightweight: I didn't want routines to be backed by fibers or threads. Having been involved some in the async project (https://github.com/socketry/async), I had some experience using fibers for concurrency but was curious if they could be avoided.
2. Explicitness: Routine behavior must be written to describe exactly how it is to behave. I always felt like concurrent code was hard to fully understand because of the indirection involved. On the spectrum between tedium and magical I wanted to err more on the side of tedium with Goru.
Goru routines are just blocks that are called once for every tick of the reactor. It is up to the developer to implement behavior in terms of a state machine, where on each tick the routine takes some action and then updates the state of the routine for the next tick. This fulfills both design constraints:
1. Because routines are just blocks, they weigh in at about ~345 bytes of memory overhead.
2. Routine behavior is explicit because it is written as a state machine inside the block.
Couple more features worth noting:
* Goru includes channels for buffered reading/writing (similar to channels in Go).
* Goru ships with primitives for non-blocking IO to easily build things like http servers.
Curious your thoughts!

Two months into learning Ruby, it is the most beautiful language I ever learned
5 projects | /r/ruby | 25 Feb 2023
Welcome! Ruby isn't exactly "dying", but the hype/popularity is definitely fading. This is primarily because Ruby is no longer "new", most of Ruby's popularity came from Rails, and now Rails is no longer the "new hotness". However, Ruby still has lots of awesome features and lots of awesome other libraries and frameworks, such as the new fancy irb gem that uses reline, nokogiri, chunky_png, the async gems, Dragon Ruby, SciRuby, Ronin, and the new Hanami web framework.

By far the best database toolkit (ORM, query builder, migration engine) I have seen for any programming language.
Is ORM still an anti-pattern?

Ruby sequel (http://sequel.jeremyevans.net/) is the only library where you can combine classic ORM Model bases usage, with a more raw query builder "just get me all the data into plain objects". You'll never need anything again in your career life.

Sketch of a Post-ORM
14 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Jun 2023
If you want a db tool which can be an ORM for your app, and drop down to a lower level dsl, while targeting specific features of the databases it supports, + having a "composable superset for building queries", there's [ruby sequel](http://sequel.jeremyevans.net/), which is the best tool of the kind you'll get for any proglang. Everything the author wants, minus the typrchecking perhaps, which is IMO shooting at the stars.
There's SQL in my Ruby
2 projects | dev.to | 7 Apr 2023
I love the Sequel library from Jeremy Evans (so much better than Rails' AREL). I've used it as my ORM-of-choice since 2008. When leveraging Sequel I almost always use the DSL, but there are times that I want to use bare SQL. When that happens, I almost always use HEREDOCs and my own version of String#squish.

Ask HN: Who's using Ruby web development without Ruby on Rails (RoR)?

I've been on the Roda  and Sequel  framework for over 10 years now across various projects. Even after all these years, starting a project in this stack feels like a breath of fresh air even compared to the newer language/frameworks that jabe come out since.
Jeremy Evans is the creator and maintainer of both of these Ruby gems and is super helpful in resolving ask kinda of issues.

What It Took to Build a Rails Integration for Rodauth
11 projects | dev.to | 12 Oct 2022
Even though Rodauth is built on top of Roda and Sequel, it can work as a Rack middleware in any Ruby web framework. In the beginning, there was a demo app showing how Rodauth can be used in Rails, which leveraged the (now discontinued) roda-rails gem. However, the integration felt fairly raw, and definitely lacked the ergonomics Rails developers are used to.
