Ruby-gtk3 - "embedding" into the browser?

Hi guys,

I wrote a little GTK wrapper around FTP.

This ruby-gtk app allows me to connect to a remote host, then transfer
files.

It has a few bugs still, but it works ok, and my goal is to improve it
further in the future.

A few months ago I watched a Video in where GIMP was embedded into a tab
of firefox.

This amazed me a lot!

I then thought I could embed ALL my ruby-gtk apps in firefox! :slight_smile:

Especially with my FTP GTK wrapper, this would be awesome.

Can someone tell me if it would be possible to embed ruby-gtk apps in
firefox eventually that way? Or what is missing or whether this is not
possible?

It would be GREAT to be able to embed any ruby-gtk app in a browser!

Are you talking about this :

If you are talking about the broadway backend, it is only GTK3, and it
is experimental. IMHO, it won’t be stable before a year or two. If not
more.
