Is there a current ruby binding to libevent?

Is anyone aware of a current binding to libevent?
I’ve been unable to google one up.

Thanks,
reid

There have been attempts to make one but it has proven to be more
profitable to create a dedicated Ruby library for event-driven
programming. Try here:

Rev is a binding to libev, which is similar to libevent, but faster:

You may also want to check out EventMachine[1], a similar event-driven
system that seems to be the current de facto standard and is the basis
for a number of popular gems including rest-client[2].

Yes, but the newer version of libevent is going to have IOCP support in
windows so might be better for a mult-platform base event library

libevent bindings would be nice, for just that reason. I also have this
gut feeling that eventmachine isn’t as fast as a “finely tuned” event
implementation could be.

I even added a bounty for it:

Enjoy.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to take Rev and modify it to use libevent
as
the backend instead of libev. They share extremely similar APIs.

Rev already supports Windows… kind of.

There are a couple of good event loop libraries in Ruby, probably the
most
popular is EventMachine which has its own event loop system.

Another good one is cool.io http://coolio.github.com/ which is a wrapper
around
and includes http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/libev.html
