Rumai 2.0.2 Ruby interface to the wmii window manager http://snk.tuxfamily.org/lib/rumai Rumai is a Ruby interface to the wmii window manager. Version 2.0.2 (2009-02-26) This release fixes a connection bug. Bug fixes * wmii omits the fractional portion of $DISPLAY in its socket file path. Rumai was trying to connect with the entire $DISPLAY value (including the fractional portion) and thus could not find wmii's socket file. Thanks to Simon Hafner for helping me debug this.

Too bad that I didn't know of rumai back when I was actually using wmii. I am quite surprised though that I never came along it's name, even when writing my very own Ruby frontend for wmii (which I honestly abandoned because I didn't really like what wmii provided). Would you say that rumai would change the behaviour and feeling of wmii in major ways, compared to ruby-wmii? Or is it more or less just the same result with cleaner code?

The project was named wmii-irb in the past, and I don't recall announcing it on ruby-talk back then. It was mostly discussed on the wmii mailing list. > Would you say that rumai would change the behaviour and feeling of > wmii in major ways, compared to ruby-wmii? Yes. Try the live demonstration (IRB session) examples in the user manual and see for yourself: http://snk.tuxfamily.org/lib/rumai/#Tutorial > Or is it more or less just he same result with cleaner code? Rumai is a *library* that lets you manipulate wmii in a Ruby-ish way. In contrast, ruby-wmii is not a library; it is an operating environment (with plugins, logging, integration, etc.) for your wmii configuration (wmiirc). As a result, ruby-wmii can be built atop Rumai to allow even more scriptability. My personal wmiirc (not ruby-wmii) does exactly that: http://www.suckless.org/wmii/alternative_wmiirc_scripts.html Cheers.
