xchat has some kind of ruby plugin; I suppose one could write
addons in ruby and have had them work in xchat, I never used them myself
my question is - are bindings like this possible in hexchat as
shevy, the ruby plugin is dead and outdated, if somebody were
familiar with the ruby C api they could update it to work with hexchat
aha ok, thanks TingPing
sadly I only know ruby, not C
TingPing hmm hexchat has support for addons written in python3?
Why are there so many python devs out there writing bindings
in C to python, and ruby has significantly less people
available to do the same?
Ruby is the better language but python has more users AND
developers. The speed difference is negligible.
Is it because the ruby C api is much harder to work with
than python? And if not, why are there a million python
devs knowing C and the pool of ruby hackers with C
AND willing to commit to it are so fewer?
