What's going on with the shoes community? The list used to be so much more active.

Every day or two there would be someone trying to figure out how to do 
something in shoes for example. It was nice to see. Now there's some talk 
of development once in a while, which is great, but I see few posts from 
users/newbies nowadays. Is it that few people are subscribed to the list? 
Are people not finding the list? Is there an official site now or what? Is
there some other reason for the inactivity?

I don't get it. I just hope the shoes community isn't dwindling.

I have tiny problem, I don't know how to search for this issue on the
internet so I'd like to ask here because you'll probably understand me.
While using Shoes in windows I write in my script this line to open
anything(images, text files...) -
system 'start script.txt'

I wonder how to do it on Linux, Ubuntu. I know that you can open from
terminal by using gnome-open but I'm not sure how to use terminal from
Shoes application like in windows.

Luka,

   `gnome-open "file.extension"`
    Note the enclosing backticks. If the extension is not registered 
with an app, it will fail.
    Also note that gnome-open doesn't work on all Linux. on Ubuntu, it does.

Thanks for that. Seems like it does the trick with pictures and text files,
but from some reason it does nothing when I try to open .pdf file.
Is that the case of unregistered extension?

Correct. I don't know where to set it but I'm sure you can find the 
answer with some searching.

Building shoes for 32-bit OSX

Hello, Eric. YOU ARE my like-minded person!

My machine is also 32-bit OSX, MacBook:)
Unofficially I keep trying the 32bit Shoes on OSX 10.6 and 10.5 both.
And recently came to build it, but the bad point of my Shoes is that  
it cannot get full Encoding.list.

If you please, download 'my32bitShoes.zip' and check out my results  
here:
   https://public.me.com/vhuto
(Uh, this Shoes works just on OSX 10.6. I'll upload 10.5's one, If you  
want.)

Sorry, because I have not learned C, I cannot tell you technical  
matters...
But compilation of dependencies was not tough way on my environment,  
so I have interst in your environment.

Thanks for sharing your work. I'll download your Shoes and see if I can
reproduce your results.

I am using 10.6, too, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Well there is still a community, although probably a smaller one.

It could just be that people are finding the answers by searching and that
the most common questions have already been asked. More often than not, I
can find answers to the questions I have by searching the old list:
http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.shoes

There's 148 subscribed to the Google Group. I don't know how many where
subscribed to _why's original list. Or to the librelist mailing list.


> Are people not finding the list?
>

Possible, although both mailing lists are linked on the Github page (
http://wiki.github.com/shoes/shoes). The Google group is also linked on the
new Shoes website (http://shoes.heroku.com/current-progress), albeit not in
an obvious place! Googling for "shoes toolkit" gives the heroku website as
the 2nd result. The wikipedia entry is 1st and this links to the new heroku
website.

Is there an official site now or what?
>

Yep, see http://shoes.heroku.com/

Is there some other reason for the inactivity?
>

Well, I'm pretty sure that with _why gone, a lot of people decided to look
at alternatives such as Limelight and Bowline. Even though Shoes has a
maintainer and is still being developed there are plenty of reasons people
will look elsewhere:
* they might feel it is not being developed quickly enough
* they might feel it has a chance of being abandoned
* they might just have had an interest in _why's work and now it's not being
done by him they are no longer interested.

Personally, I would like to think the reason for inactivity is because
everyone is busy trying to develop Shoes!

Well, it probably has a little, but there is still a lot of interest. 135
forks of the shoes/shoes repo on Github. People still filing issues, people
still asking questions on stackoverflow.


Kind regards,

I've been building Hackety Hack, so that's not related to shoooes itself,
but using it, for sure.

UnsubscribingWhen you subscribe you get an email that tells you how to
unsusbcribe by sending an email to LIST-unsubscribe@librelist.com. Of
course put the list you want to leave in place of LIST. You’ll get a
confirmation and then you’ll be taken off.

Is there a way to get the gems spreadsheet or writeexcel to work with
shoes?  Writeexcel works with my ruby200 installation but not with
shoes.  Writeexcel is installed in shoes gems and in shoes $LOAD_PATH.
Shoes hands me the error uninitialized constant Encoding:: UTF_8.  I have
tried to launch Ruby200 from shoes with exec, system, `*`, IO.popen.
Thanks, Bart

Hi Bart,

What platform are you using?
Shoes 3 has many bugs for using with other gems.
But sorry, we don't update Shoes 3 any more.

About Shoes: http://shoesrb.com/about.html

So, if it's possible for you, please use Shoes 4 or Green Shoes. ;-)

Ashbb,

I am having trouble with green_shoes.  Your installation instructions say
use Ruby 1.9 or above.  Do you mean 1.9 only? I have Ruby 2 on (gag)
Vista.  If I use para in a block I don't get an error message, but the
stack is in the wrong place.  If I try to para outside of a block, I get an
undefined method para error message.  My buttons are also in the wrong
places. I can't load a second app.

Thanks,
Bart

Hi Bart,

which green shoes version are you running? I seem to recall an error
related to the last version with one of my programs, but I don't have the
time to check right now. I'll try to find it later.
