Deploying a Ruby desktop app


#1

Hi,

Suppose I build a ruby desktop app to talk across the internet to a
database. How do I make it easy for users that do not have ruby
installed to use this program? I’m looking for a one click solution.

Thanks,
Peter

hi

I use the 1 click installer for ruby, then i have a second installer
for my app. the app installer is created with nsis.

the installer installs various gems i use too, like fxruby, and
activerecord which has been great for cross internet db access
(actually over a plink tunnel).

two clicks anyone?
