Ruby Plugins for GNOME, Gedit, Rhythmbox, Nautilus, Totem,

The Gnome Desktop has interesting applications that can be extended by
plugins written in Python or C. I didn’t find any information about if
is possible to write this plugins in Ruby, too.

I don’t know if these plugins can’t be written in Ruby or other
technical reasons, but we should focus to integrate better Ruby in
Gnome.

Gedit doesn’t recornize RHTML syntax, an icon for .rb files is still
missing, I can’t believe that I’m the one that doesn’t use Mac OS X
here…

Also note that as soon as gedit, etc are using the new
gtksourceview-1.9.x stuff, highlighting RHTML will be easier/better
because it has support for context aware highlighting (so HTML bits
would be highlighted as HTML, and ruby bits like ruby).

Hi,

its not directly a GNOME app, but the upcoming version if gimp is
completle scriptable in ruby. Inkscape also suports ruby scripts.

are in plan bindings for nautilus, totem,… ?

specialy for this two i see no sense in scripting support. Good
candidates for scripting are gnumeric and abiword, but AFAIK simply no
one did it for now.

I started to do some SWIG/ruby bindings for evolution-data-server with
wich I could do some interesting stuff (like sahring calendars via
XMPP). Unfortunately I got burnt be real life workload and studying so
I have it basically stalled. If you are interested I can point you to
the relevant directions.

How are these bindings different from Revolution, the evolution (data)
bindings for Ruby? [1] Except that the these binding upstream seems
to have stalled even more.

Hi Paul,

Sorry for the late reply.

The bindings are autogenrated, wich theoretically means you can
generate bindings easier once you’ve done some basic plumbing (although
IIRC the revolution bindings worked pretty fine). Here is the relevant
direction at www.go-evolution.org/SWIGforEDS.

There are some docs on the page also. The bundle is not currently online
anymore, but I can send you the code if you are interested. Just PM at
vseguip at gmail dot com.

Cheers,
V. Segui
