Try Ruby is back up and better than ever!

Greetings,

First, I’d like to thank James for updating the link over at
ruby-lang.org.

As Mentioned before TryRuby.org is the new home of Try Ruby.
TryRruby.sophrinix.com should resolve sometime soon by the middle of
next week.
The old link will simply be a redirect to TryRuby.org

Now for the exciting news.

All the lessons (including the ones using the File System) should now
work.
I would like to thank nanothief over at github for forking FakeFS and
getting it to work
with TryRuby!

The new and improved Try Ruby is now on an EC2 instance rather than an
old dedicated server with unimpressive pipes.
For those interested, I am running Try Ruby on version ruby 1.9.1p376
(2009-12-07 revision 26041) [i686-linux]

With all this said, this opens the door for additional lessons. I will
keep future plans and speculations limited to the ticket tracker and
wiki
over at the github repo for Try Ruby!

Enjoy!

Respectfully,
Andrew McElroy

It looks nice.

Has anyone tried using TryRuby with the Opera browser?
I ask, because that’s what I mostly use, and using Opera I couldn’t
edit my input:
BackSpace didn’t work at all, and the arrow keys gave strange results.

Editing using BackSpace and the arrow keys seems fine using Firefox
and Internet Explorer 8.

Maybe it might be worth saying on the TryRuby page that it has been
tested
and works (or should work, depending on how confident you are)
with Firefox and Internet Explorer, etc, but that there are “issues”
with Opera (etc?).

Please open a ticket on github http://github.com/Sophrinix/TryRuby,
I need to know what keypress_test,html says. From there I can create a
conditional in the
keyboard event method and support it.

Thanks.

For speed (sorry, I don’t yet have a github account) the following
happens:
Arrow keys: Up=>& Down=>) LeftArrow =>% Right=>’
Have I understood your question:
“I need to know what keypress_test,html says” ?

I am looking for Keycodes.

For instance on a mac with firefox, when I press the up arrow key I get:

Keycode: 38

The other data section is nice, but its the keycodes that I am after.

I hope that helps.

I’m in Chrome Beta on Linux. Arrow keys work fine, but backspace seems
to be
interpreted as a delete.
