I went hunting around for theming for Tk, and bumped into Tile.
Tk being legendarily ugly, tile represents a great new hope that with
tile it could be elevated to being barely adequate.
I saw a reference that it was available in Ruby’s CVS from sometime in
2005, suggesting that there is support in the more recent versions of
I did some hunting, but I couldn’t find any references to how to get it
Patching together some mailing list references, I think this is how I
could do it:
The tile require fails since it’s not there. Presumably it’s not
included with ruby or ruby-tk with my distribution. That’s expected.
I see that there isn’t a gem for tile, or my guess at “gem install
tile” isn’t right.
I see that I could download tile  and built it from source, but
somehow I doubt this would solve my require problem.
I googled, and I searched the mailing lists, but I can’t find any
concrete examples of installing or using tile (outside of home
renovations), and I could use a bit of help…
I would also accept answers of “go use toolkit x instead”, but I
already intend to do that if I can’t get this going.
Also, is tile something I’d have to package with my program or have a
person install with my distributed software? How would that work?
