Stuff was living on Kenai, but I’ve been meaning to get away from there,
and now you’ve motivated me to finally get my ass in gear.
New Monkeybars mailing list:
The Kenai stuff will be abandoned once code, tickets, etc. are migrated.
Issues will go to Pivotal Tracker:
Code lives on Github: http://github.com/monkeybars/monkeybars-core
So, are these sites still up to date? Are there any others to be aware of?
Finally, how do Jimpanzee and roir differ from Monkeybars and rawr,
and are they active?
I started Jimpanzee and Roir so I could code things my way, my style,
for my purposes. It seemed a simpler path than debating coding style,
method names, etc. Since I’ve taken over project management of
Monkeybars and Rawr I’ve been rolling my stuff back in. For example,
the configuration and defaults I set up for roir are now part of rawr.
Monkeybars will likely end up with a dependency on SwingSet (but I’m
not so sure of that and haven’t pushed anything yet). SwingSet makes it
stupid easy to knock out UIs using as simple DSL-ish API.
There hasn’t been a lot of development lately because, pretty much,
stuff works for what it was meant to do. There were some changes made
to rawr to keep up with some changes in JRuby. I have to check that
nothing broke in Monkeybars from any changes in JRuby, but I’m pretty
I keep meaning to do some screencasts on Rawr, SwingSet, and Monkeybars
just to be sure folks are aware of what’s current.
Maybe next week …
