Ruby interpreter on the iPad

Is there any such beast, like Python, Scheme, CAML which are already
there ?..
Thanks,

Not sure if it does but look at this:

http://www.macruby.org/

I’m assuming they have this for IOS development for iphone and ipad.

I have an Android phone so I can’t speak authoritatively, but my
understanding was that you couldn’t distribute any application for
iPhone/iPad which would interpret code.

However, there was recently an off-topic post here where someone said
they had made a Scheme interpreter available through the App Store:
http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/1743573

Warning: since you have to pay them 99c to test their claim, it could
just be a scam.

Otherwise, your best bet might be one of the experimental Ruby
interpreters written in Javascript. Or you could try this:
http://bellard.org/jslinux/
http://bellard.org/jslinux/tech.html
I’d be interested to know how long it takes to boot on an iPad :slight_smile:

An Android pad wouldn’t have this issue. “Rubuto” is full jRuby for
Android, and is available for free from the Android marketplace.

Brian.

Apple later changed that to “you can distribute an interpreter, as
long as it doesn’t download code off the internet”. Also the scheme
interepreter is legit; the guy is the main gambit developer, so at the
very least he’s unlikely to be running an ipad app scam :slight_smile:

What you can do is run ruby inside jslinux. I am checking with the
author to see if he’ll let let legally. Otherwise I smell a clean room
re implementation.

Hi, I’m not sure what you are trying to do. But have you heard about
what these guys are doing?

strictly speaking the arm build of ruby 1.9.2 does compile and run on
iOS.
The problem is getting access for uikit. Also, the app store seems to
hate
freedom.
