The very recent 0.0.40 release upgraded WxRuby to support the latest
version of WxWidgets (2.8.3), has a lot of widgets and plenty of
samples. It can probably be considered beta-quality in terms of
stability. also look at WxSugar, which provides a more ruby-ish
API to the library.
Both can be easily installed via rubygems and bundled within
a standalone app using rubyscript2exe with no external dependencies.
Excuse my hijacking the thread, but maybe my narrowing the field a bit
can be of use to others as well. Iâ€™m currently developing a commandline
app that I might want to wrap in a nice GUI in the future. Iâ€™m an Ubuntu
user, so GTK/GNOME is my primary platform; running the app under Windows
would be a nice addition, but not the ultimate goal. I saw GIMP under
Windows and it surely doesnâ€™t look pretty/native, but is usable (i.e.,
doesnâ€™t burn my eyes out with how the GTK controls look).
Is my current vision that Ruby-GNOME2 would be a better choice in my
case the right one? (More stable, more documentation, more controls,
the possibility to develop in Glade.)
Is running a Ruby-GNOME2 app under Windows a lot
of hassle, compared to WxSugar + rubyscript2exe?
Thanks a lot for your answers!
