Look no further!
For the longest time, I was searching for a pure-Ruby mud client. I
even found a few which threatened to let me do Ruby scripting, but
nothing paid off.
Until last weekend, when Martin K. emailed me in reference to my
age-old search. Actually, a few interesting projects came at me
through that thread. Apparently he had a mostly-working client that
had been on the back burner since before I started looking!
Over the weekend I worked with it, and have resolved nearly all of my
issues and wrote decent documentation. It’s been put forth as a
RubyForge project and has since had the old files and my revisions
Here’s the selling-point:
*** IT ACTUALLY WORKS ***
Yes kids, it works… has one dependancy (ncurses), is tiny (60k!), and
has complete scripting features.
The only outstanding annoyance is that I’m having inconsistant issues
with colour output. I only get brights. =/
I’m making all kinds of fun newbie mistakes hacking around… but it
works and it’ll only get better from here.
Is it too late to enter into RubyQuiz #45?
