    You can use the Async gem and the Falcon web server to take advantage of this capability. And starting in Ruby 3.0, async I/O is even more automatic because inside the Ruby runtime, all socket operations will automatically yield the current fiber by default. It’s fully transparent to the developer. Your I/O calls appear to be blocking so they are easy to understand, consistent with Ruby’s “programmer happiness” philosophy.

    Indeed, and this is a limitation of running networking libraries with no specific knowledge of the inner event loop. The article mentions using URI.openor net-http with async for parallel requests, but this only works if the underlying sockets aren't shared across fibers, something that more advanced libraries do for you. This is something I found out while testing httpx inside async , and it's something impossible to do atm without async-specific code (what async-http does), something which will hopefully be addressed. Do you know if polyphony suffers from the same limitation?
