Cometd client for Ruby

I am going to have to connect to a comet server using Ruby. What I need
is
something that can be used directly from a Ruby program that has
absolutely
nothing to do with Rails.

rayeux is no longer supported and the last commit was 2 years ago
faye (the replacement given on the rayeux page) is a 404 on github

All the links that Google kicks up seem to be completely obsessed with
using Javascript in Rails applications or want me to set up a node.js
environment for some reason. I just need to talk to a server without
excess
baggage.

Can someone point me to something simple that will let a Ruby script
talk
to a cometd server?

I’ve not used a comet server before, but would a browser interface like
Watir-webdriver or Mechanize work for you?

Thanks for the suggestion but nope. Thats an insane amount of baggage to
be
carrying just to connect to a server.

I may have to resort to writing the application in Java :frowning:

Ah so it is still alive. Thanks I will install and investigate this

Documentation never seems to be updated, I find severl gems listed in
rubygems spit up 404s to their homepages, especially when they’re in
github, but I end up searching github and sometimes find them again. I
am unsure why ppl do not updated their .gemspecs with new home page info
so rubygems can point to the right place.

Wait! Don’t give it up yet! Let the Faye be with you! :slight_smile:
