"Sucker Punch is a single-process Ruby asynchronous processing library. It's girl_friday and DSL sugar on top of Celluloid. With Celluloid's actor pattern, we can do asynchronous processing within a single process. This reduces costs of hosting on a service like Heroku along with the memory footprint of having to maintain additional jobs if hosting on a dedicated server. All queues can run within a single Rails/Sinatra process. Sucker Punch is perfect for asynchronous processes like emailing, data crunching, or social platform manipulation. No reason to hold up a user when you can do these things in the background within the same process as your web application..." #Ruby #gems #background_jobs #single_processes #pub
