Anyone with experience to share? Sqlite3 is the only hard requirement,
but I’m very reluctant to go back to ruby 1.8, and Qt would be a plus
because this is intended to be a companion to an existing Qt app.
You might want to check out ruby2exe, I haven’t used this but it looks
good possibility for what you’re trying to do.
If you’re going to add database support you might want to think about
ActiveRecord, this will make it easier for you to switch to another
later. There is also RubyDBI you might want to look at. Unless there is
to use specific feature of sqlite3, you might want to use a more
database interface than sqlite3-ruby.
GUI wise, there is wxWidgets which takes a lot of ideas from MFC Windows
programming, you could check that project out, for Ruby you would then
working with WxRuby
I have not used either of there, but you can compare it with QT4
