Yahoo! Widgets (JavaScript) - do we have a anything like thi


#1

Hi all!

There is a challenge on Pixel Corps (http://www.pixelcorps.com/)

to write a cool widget that runs both on WinXP and Mac OS X… I was
going
to use Ruby and OpenGL. In the challenge, they mentioned Yahoo! Widgets
( http://widgets.yahoo.com/ ). I checked it out, and it looks amazing!
They provide all sorts of graphics API to make things easier, and the
whole
thing is based upon JavaScript and XML.

Do we have anything like this in the Ruby world?

Thanks!

Wouldn’t bindings to Linux desktop / window managers let you implement
applets
for those? (Look, Mom, no proprietary applet engine!) Just a thought,
haven’t
really actually looked into it.
