Quickbooks gem

Hi everyone,

Has anyone have any recent notice about www.behindlogic.com - the author
of the
quickbooks gem?

The gem seems to be a great tool for the job of comunicating with
quickbooks from a ruby aplication.

However what I see is that the last entry in the blog is from february
28th, 2010.

The other point is that it seems not to work with IronRuby.

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me…

Regards,

Eduardo B.

Has anyone have a hint?

Thank you,

Eduardo B.

It looks like his last tweet was in April 2010 and his last update to
his github account was May 14, 2010. The github account lists an
email address that you could use to contact him (not posted here to
avoid feeding the spambots).

Unfortunately Daniel Parker, author of the Quickbooks gem, passed away
in a tragic bicycle accident:

It is sad to hear that, specially being so young (23 years old!!!)

Would it help someone in his family if we buy the ruby gem from his
web-site?

Thank you for the quick answer.

IronRuby is no longer developed or supported by Microsoft:

Note that the key phrase here is “by Microsoft”. The project is still
alive. The blog author indicated that he and his former coworker
would continue working on it, just not full-time. You can also see
activity here: http://ironruby.net/Special:Recentchanges.

You might want to use the regular Ruby (MRI) instead:

http://rubyinstaller.org/

There is also JRuby if your environment is Java friendly:

http://jruby.org/

Cheers.

Charles, you are right.
Microsoft lost interest in promoting Dynamic Languages (to a point),
however
the idea of IronRuby has a lot of potential.

Anyways, this issue is off-topic.

Going back to Quickbooks gem, I can still get it, paying for it
obviously…

Thanks in advance…

Charles,
Actually Mine was a question:
Can I still get the gem by paying it?

Regarding that, a gem, as far as I know, is a collection of .rb files,
so the source is there…

Thank you,

Eduardo B.

Out of curiosity, does it come with source?

Don’t know, actually. I suppose it depends on whether the purchasing
of the gem is automated or if not, whether someone is processing
purchases.

Haven’t dug into gems yet (other than using them), so I didn’t know
that, but thanks. :slight_smile:

Am I incorrect in my understanding that a binary library written in C
can
be included in a Ruby gem? The Gem::Specification Reference 1 seems
to
suggest this is the case.
