Source code from complex user interfaces RUBY GTK

Hi,

I’ve just started creating user interfaces with Ruby GTK and I would
like to know where can I find source code of complete interfaces,
examples and stuff, to learn to use all the features.

My program should have a window with all the normal options (File, Edit,
Help, etc); I would like to know where can I find source code from
programs made this way.

Thanks.

Hello John,

I’ve particularly liked Hal F.'s Ruby Way (there’s
a second edition ) and the Ruby Cookbook. I think both are available
on Safari, eg.

Best regards,

Axel

But I do have to pay for that :S?

Well, yeah. Otherwise, The Ruby-GNOME2 project page has examples, too,
and a handful of tutorials.

You get what you pay for, though. :confused:

I’m not sure a book is the best choice. You don’t know what’s in the
book. Maybe it’s a nominal section about the library, nothing more.

You can use ‘gem’ to search for gems that depend on that GUI library.
Then you’ll have plenty of examples.

Except Ruby-GNOME2 isn’t distributed as gem, and thus gems cannot depend
on it (an install would fail, since the dependency cannot be satisfied).

On the one hand you say packages don’t depend on some non-existing
GNOME2 gem.

On the other hand you say the install would fail because the
(non-existing!) dependency cannot be satisfied…

Help, etc); I would like to know where can I find source code from
programs made this way.

The best way is to

  • use krugle to search for specific ruby-gnome constructs
  • look at the wiki (it has a LOT of knowledge buried)
  • find some examples on the www

In a way you shouldnt worry too much, just make a little todo list what
you want to achieve. The smaller, the easier it can be solved. And you
can use the mailing list for the ruby-gtk folks too :slight_smile:

Yes.

If a gem would depended on a dependency that cannot be satisfied, yes.

There’s a reason I used the subjunctive in that case: To answer the
question ‘imagine if that were possible’, as Raymond Chen would put it.
