Best UI library?


#1

Hello, I need a simple UI library for a simple project (an UI simple to
program). It must be multiplatform and easy to bundle with that small
app.

Which one would feet my needs ?

  • I’ve found ruby-tk beeing quite easy to understand but unfortunately
    is no more bundled with ruby.
  • I’ve gived up with ruby Gnome 2, at least I didn’t understand how to
    install gnome OR its ruby binding on a Win32 platform
  • I didn’t tried the others (wxWidgets, QT)

Thanks

FXRuby (http://www.fxruby.org/) might feet your needs. It is included
with the One-Click Ruby Installer for Windows.

I like QTRuby … however, it’s very large and full-featured.

the ruby-gnome2 web site explains that (under windows one does not
install the gnome, just gtk2 runtime):

i found gtk2 + glade interface builder good (under windows and linux)
but i am just starting (wrote few sample applications pulling data from
postgresql and displaying it as a table).
