State Machines in Ruby: An Introduction

Let's build a simple state machine in Ruby and use the state machines gem.A state machine can hold all possible states of something and the allowed transitions between these states. For example, the state machine for a door would have only two states (open and closed) and only two transitions (opening and closing).On the other hand, complex state machines can have several different states with hundreds of transitions between them. In fact, if you look around, you will notice finite state machines surrounding you — when you buy from a website, get a pack of crisps from the vending machine, or even just withdraw money from an ATM.In this post, we'll look at how to set up a state machine in Ruby and use the state machines gem.
