Good day, everyone. It's been a few weeks since the first versions of Hackety Hack were opened up to the web. H-ety H is a combo pack, Ruby built into a browser, designed to aid teaching and offer a simpler way for plain peoples to get into hacking. Since that time, I've been working on cleaning up the build process, porting H-ety H and organizing the libraries. This is why you may come to read announcements from time-to-time about the Hackety Hack gem. gem install hacketyhack --source http://code.whytheluckystiff.net This gem includes all of the helpful libraries used to simplify and tie together Hackety Hack, so that you can use them at the console or wherever Ruby may greet you. As an example, here is a script from the HH lessons: Hacker('why').load_program('youtube.rb') youtube_vid = ask("Enter the link to a YouTube video:") save_as = ask("Your name for this video:") YouTube.download(youtube_vid, save_as + ".flv") So, for example, the gem gives up all the methods for sharing hacks and using chat channels on the hacketyhack.net site. I'm afraid I'm a bit short on RDoc, but there is complete documentation in static/docs.txt of the gem directory. This will be remedied, I fully assure you in the calming, reassuring voice of Porky Pig. _why  http://hacketyhack.net/ <- linux version just released!

Hooray for a version that I can use as well! (Thank you _why. You taught me Ruby and DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT.)
