Erlang / Ruby Bridge: It’s Erlectricity

By Peter Cooper / May 10, 2007

Erlectricity is a very early stage library in a "pre-release" stage that acts as an interoperability bridge between Ruby and Erlang processes. Scott Fleckenstein is the developer, and he is going to continue blogging about Erlectricity's development, and Ruby / Erlang interoperability on his blog. While this topic isn't quite mainstream yet, many Ruby developers have become interested in Erlang lately and Ruby / Erlang interoperability and co-operation is likely to become a big topic in the Ruby community towards the end of the year.

    While Ruby/Erlang interoperability is a great idea, I don't think it's a substitute for a tightly-implemented efficient Ruby runtime/monitors/mutexes/garbage collection/dRB/Rinda. And there are other features in Erlang besides its highly efficient implementations of concurrency. Those could be imported into the Ruby run time as well.
