Rawr 1.1.1


#1

JRuby users,
Your favorite packaging and deployment tool for JRuby is now at 1.1.1!
This is mostly a minor release, fixing a bug where Windows users with
spaces in their names couldn’t generate exes.

For those new to Rawr, this is what it does (as a series of rake tasks):
Compiles Java and Ruby files in your project, and stuffs them into an
executable jar.
Maintains the executable jar’s manifest, and keeps your Java/Jar based
libraries in the classpath.
Provides a Main.java to assist with doing hybrid JRuby/Java
development in Netbeans.
Jars up your data/media files into separate jars.
Builds .exe files for Windows
Builds .app files for OS X

Hi Logan,

Where’s the source code repository?

I didn’t see it here: http://rubyforge.org/projects/rawr/

thanks

Hey Logan,
is there much writeup on Rawr? The project page is a bit spartan and I
am wondering
if anyone is playing with it in the blogosphere much.

Got a bit too much in my in queue atm, but but distributing
applications is always tricky,
and I am always on the lookout for anything that jumps the shark on
this. Especially
anything that can autogenerate native installers and the like.

Richard,
Rawr isn’t something we’ve blogged about a lot (if at all), but you
can see examples in of its usage in Monkeybars presentations (and
other links I could dig up):
http://rubyconf2008.confreaks.com/monkeybars-easy-cross-platform-guis.html
http://www.beyondthetype.com/tweetobix
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-monkeybars/index.html

Rawr isn’t strictly for Monkeybars. I’ve been using it for Gemini
projects as well:

Feel free to use JRuby wiki if you need some web space. Rawr is cool
stuff.

Thanks Logan,

I was more wondering if you had noticed some writeups yourselves,
rather than your
own blogs.

I will have to give it a whirl soon.

Indeed it is. Is there something in the water though… Rawr is not
the first tool I saw that
allowed for ‘push button’ creation of all-in-one ruby application
distributions, bundling up all the
necessary binaries into one convenient to distribute file.

I just read about Crate recently:
http://copiousfreetime.rubyforge.org/crate/ which is a pure ruby
take on this problem, with some interesting ideas in it (all the ruby
files are in sqlite3 databases).

And I have just been messing about with the awesomeness that is the
Shoes 2 release.
It bundles a packager for your shoes app/script …

Multiple independent solutions to the same problem arriving on the
scene at around the same time,
this is good news indeed.
