    The gem is outdated, and in need of a new maintainer!

    I've been "maintaining" for a while, but would welcome someone to take over
    also, the project description on github is way outdated
    I think the bindings are for chipmunk 6.3 or so

    Oh yes. The problem is that I don't use chipmunk anymore but my own physics engine. So I lost interest, sorry. Chipmunk is great for some kinds of games, but not for 2d top-down games with a huge tile map. With chipmunk you need to create and manage too many static bodies to model the tile map. My physics engine reads the tile map directly.

    Would it be wise to use this in a separate thread in rails(via suckerpunch gem) to mirror the physics of a websocket game where the client is also using chipmunk ?

    Hi all. Unfortunately this gem is now unmaintained since I lack time and lost interest in Chipmunk. If it works as is for you then you

    Then you can use it but bugs and missing features you will have to fix yourself

    hi @code-matt my guess is that you'd end up with slightly different answers in the client and server, floats / archs / OSs / etc

    @code-matt
    Ah, I did not think of that. If its very slight, I should be able to give the clients some slight leeway between their state and the servers .
    @shawn42 thanks!

    Hi there. I am new to ruby chipmunk. Is there any installation guide for Linux? Also can I use this gem with Ruby2D?

    Hi @Souravgoswami the chipmunk gem should install from source with a gem install Are you seeing a specific error?

    @Souravgoswami
    Yes, @shawn42, when I run gem install chipmunk I get an error in Makefile. Here's the gem_make.out:
