Hackety-Hack on Green Shooooes!

Hackety-Hack on Green Shooooes!

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to give the list a heads up on some very neat hacking
coming from Team Shoes member Satoshi Asakawa.

Satoshi (ashbb) has been refactoring hackety-hack to work on his
green_shoes implementation of Shoes in pure ruby. Green Shoes (
http://github.com/ashbb/green_shoes/ ) uses ruby-gtk2 bindings for gui
support and drawing surface, otherwise is written entirely in ruby!

Check out his fork that he's got working on green_shoes here:
https://github.com/ashbb/hacketyhack

I'm sure he'd love some help testing it and refactoring some of the features!


Cheers!
Zak

Fun fun!

It's unfortunate that the OSX issues with green_shoes have yet to be
resolved.

Green Shoes does work on OSX
(https://github.com/ashbb/green_shoes/wiki/Building-Green-Shoes-on-OSX)

I'd say there are only really one a half issues. The half being that
no one has tested installing all the dependencies via Homebrew (I've
just updated the instructions with a guess at the Homebrew approach).
The main issue though is that really GTK-OSX should be used for a much
more native approach (with UI elements, etc) and it just looks fiddly
to install, let alone whether it will work with Ruby bindings, etc.

Ah, nobody told me that it worked without X11!

I'll have to give this a try.
