Elixir is one modern language that is introducing many Rubyists to the world of highly scalable, highly distributed, functional programming-based programming. In a more narrow scope, one language feature that many people liked is the now famous Pipe Operator "|>". There is nothing like this in Ruby. But could there be such an operator? And if it could be done, would it be useful? I started a pet project called "Chainable Methods" to address just that.
