RubyFrontier 1.1 Released

RubyFrontier 1.1 puts its foot into strange waters by attempting to be
compatible with Ruby 1.9.3 (after a lifetime of living solely in 1.8.6
and 1.8.7).

RubyFrontier is a TextMate bundle, implementing a template-based system
of building Web pages and (especially) Web sites in a highly automated
manner. It generates static Web pages; it isn’t a Web application
framework. Its purpose is to make Web sites a convenient writing tool,
separating form from content (you concentrate on content, and
RubyFrontier wraps up that content into Web page form when you build the
site). RubyFrontier is excellent for heavily hyperlinked pages and for
automatic generation of navigation structures such as breadcrumbs,
next-prev links, etc. The system is modeled in the first instance after
UserLand Frontier’s html suite, which I documented in my Frontier book.

Commit notes:

I would like to thank Sam S. for creating rbenv:

Without rbenv I would never in a million years have been able to do
this. It was so easy to install and try Ruby 1.9.3, safe in the
knowledge that there were no hacks, that all my Ruby 1.9.3 stuff was
confined to one directory, and that the original state of things could
be restored simply and easily at any time.

It is particularly fun swapping out Ruby versions with TextMate sitting
there open. I can run a script under Ruby 1.8.7 and then again under
Ruby 1.9.3 an instant later, without closing or reconfiguring TextMate.
It JUST WORKS. So cool. So easy. So elegant.

Nice work Matt. That’s pretty cool.

Hello List :
I used UserLand Frontier years ago to set up a web site. Going back
recently to refresh my memory I was delighted to find RubyFrontier.

I’ve downloaded the bundle and have tried it with Ruby 1.9.2, which
failed and then with
Ruby 1.8.7 which produced similar errors. I attach the errors.

I would appreciate any advice on how to track these problems down.

Further :
I’ve installed xcode command line tools and Ruby 1.9.3
No hitches during install.

Pages 1 and 3 still give errors
Further : “Build RubyFrontier Docs” produces an error as well
“uninitialized constant UserLand::Html::PageMaker::Sandbox::Haml
(eval):4:in `pageFilter’” and quite a lot more
