Nobody knows shoes, in pdf and html

Many hellos. Just a small footnote to add to this vast catalogue of
e-mail. The futile zine Nobody Knows Shoes is today released into
the public domain, as promised.

PDF and HTML versions of the book are here:

Shoes is a tiny toolkit for coding windowing apps in Ruby. We are a
tiny community, which is generally disregarded and rightfully so.
No one likes windowing apps and no one likes small, portable, and
pretty fast libraries. In fact, I think I have just talked myself
out of my own software project.

Well, phooey.

_why is not nuts.

He has achieved such a heightened sense of clarity that he has come
out the other side and appears to be nuts. This is merely sanity taken
to its extreme.

Thanks for the book _why. Is there a place where I could download
hackety hack source? it doesn’t work on ubuntu hardy. I see on
http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/hacketyhack/ that a version was
planed for the end of 2007, any news about this?

Thanks in advance,

Pat

Sure, well, I’ve been rewriting H-ety H using Shoes and have been
keeping my work in a private git repo. I just have some work to do
getting Shoes to work smoother on OS X and I hope HH will be out
soon thereafter. I tried the old HH with a group of 11-12 yr old
kids and had bad results, so have had to change quite a few things.

I know it’s been eight or nine months since a release, which borders
on vaporous. Very sorry about the lateness.

I just read it and it promises to be great fun. And very goodlooking.

Thanks,

How do I install gem on shoes? Currently I just install gem on my
current ruby and then copy the folder into the shoes folder and it
works. But how do I use the gem command with shoes and install gem on
it?

Oh, thankyou. I’m totally eager for such a day as well. The
changes are not severe at all, so it shouldn’t be too distant.

you can install it like this

Shoes.setup do
gem ‘hpricot’
end

to know your GEM dir use the irb example found into samples folder
‘expert-irb.rb’
then

require ‘rubygems’
GIM_DIR

and you should know the location of the installed gem in case you are
lost =)

Thank you very much _why … keep the golden code style

sorry
GEM_DIR

and actually without need to require rubygems
