“no such file to load – popup”

What is popup.rb? Or from where did you get it, or which code requires
it?

hi,

please check the code below, which needs the Popup library

require ‘Popup’

Popup.make do
h1 “Things To Do”
list do
p “Try out Ruby”
p “Ride a tiger”
p “(down River Euphrates)”
end
end

Cheerio,

It could be because of the capitalization. Try replacing that require
with this:
require ‘popup’

The code you are referring to is part of the “Try Ruby” web app [1], and
as far as I know has no function outside of that app. It certainly is
not part of the Ruby standard library. It is (to the best of my
knowledge) intended as a learning exercise, not an library you use to
build other applications.

Hope this helps,

hi , thanks for the reply.

I din’t know this . :slight_smile:
Is there a way to open a popup using ruby?

Yes, but how you do it depends on what ‘platform’ you’re working with.
If you’re platform is the web, then I’m sure there are many, many ways,
but I don’t know them 'cause that’s not what I use Ruby for. I’m sure
other could help you out there.

If you’re doing a desktop application, there are numerous ways to do it.
They range from simple, lightweight systems like Shoes [1] to full
fledged GUI toolkits like WxRuby [2] or Ruby-GNOME [3], and plenty of
more specialized ones like Gosu [4] (which is game-design oriented).

Some alternative interpreters like JRuby [5] and MacRuby [6] provide
their own methods for making windows, appropriate to the platforms they
are targeting (the JVM and the OS X Objective-C runtime, respectively).

It’s hard for me to make a recommendation on one of these, as I’ve only
used a few of them (and there are others I haven’t listed, besides). If
you’re just playing around, Shoes is a great place to start. Otherwise,
it might help to have more information about what sort of ‘popup’ you’re
trying to make.

Hope this helps,
