ffi-wiiuse version 0.1.0
    by Andrea Fazzi


ffi-wiiuse is a ruby wrapper around wiiuse, a C library that handles
the connection with Nintendo Wiimote devices. The binding is based on
ruby FFI so it doesn't need any compilation step. Please, note that
ffi-wiiuse API is a mere translation of wiiuse C API: no idiomatic
ruby inside!


* 1 major enhancement
  * Birthday!


* full wrap around wiiuse C API
* support for:
  * buttons
  * motion sensing
  * IR tracking
  * expansion devices: nunchuk, classic controller, Guitar Hero 3
* based on FFI so it doesn't need compilation
* Ruby 1.9.1 compatible


See examples/example.rb.


* ffi >= 0.3.0 (development version)
* wiiuse C library


  git clone git://
  cd ffi-wiiuse
  sudo rake gem:install

Will I finally be able to write a Ruby library that beats Guitar Hero
for me?

Very cool.  I've been using wiiusej with JRuby and liking it.

Big upside to wiiusej for me is monster ease of making Wii GUI apps
using JRuby + Monkeybars. :)

But I will definitely look at this.
