Current List of GUI Toolkits for Ruby???

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Guerry Semones, Oct 3, 2003.

  1. Not meaning to open this can of worms all over again, but my searches
    for a current GUI toolkit list is not being very successful. OTOH,
    it's always a lively discussion. It's just been awhile since I've
    needed to examine this particular stuff....

    I'm hoping for:
    Cross-platform (win/linux/freebsd/macOSX)

    Not as concerned with:
    Native platform look and feel

    Sounds like this one's a topic for the RubyGarden wiki.

    I'm happily using wxWindows and GNOME2 with Ruby. Portability to Windows
    and MacOS both doesn't leave you many options, though.

    FXRuby is on my to-play-with list, but I've not had time yet.

    Masao Mutoh and other's work on GTK2/GNOME2 is really impressive. The
    object models are actually somewhat merged, now, in the CVS. You can
    implement GTK objects in Ruby.

    As far as I know, the GTK bindings works under win32. With the Luna
    theme installed, it looks XP-like, too, so it merges well with the

    Speed is great, with the exception of a heavily loaded GtkTreeView, but
    that's GTK and my implementation's fault, I think.
