Ruby on mobile devices?


#1

Hi,

Anyone seen any work on running Ruby on mobile devices like mobile
phones? In theory I guess something like JRuby could be used for this
but has there been any real work done? Why should it / should it not
work?

Thanks for any info,

Robert F.

I’ve had some luck with ruby on gumstix, which have ARM/XScale
processors. Dynamic loading and sockets still have some problems,
though.
