hey all,

  here's a (dumb) little 'Breakout' game for red Shoes...
https://github.com/lljk/shoes-stuff/blob/master/breakout_commented.rb

  ...working on porting it to green...

  it could most certainly be better - but it basically works, so there ya
go...

  there's also a wiki for folks that are new to Shoes, that (hopefully)
helps explain how it all works...
https://github.com/lljk/shoes-stuff/wiki/Shoes-Breakout-Game

Shoes On...

Awesome!
That is really great and helpful for Shoesers.

I tried to run the snippets you showed on the wiki with Green Shoes for
Windows. There are four snippets. First three worked well. But the last one
didn't.

So, I revised the last snippet a little bit: http://pastie.org/3701392

Now it works with both Red and Green. :)

Thanks to your article, I noticed some issues on Green Shoes. ;-)

hi ash,

  i also noticed that certain snippets (and the breakout game itself) don't
work with green shoes - i'll port the game over to green soon - still
getting a handle on the differences between red and green :)

  in a perfect world, it would be awesome if any Shoes code could be
executed under any flavor of Shoes - but i know that's not entirely
possible.

  one of the things i've been thinking of is trying to document some of the
differences between red and green, which could maybe be helpful to others
as well...

  thanks for making the last snippet work!

hey ash,

  great!  works like a charm...  i made a few minor changes and posted
"breakout_green.rb" up on github - https://github.com/lljk/shoes-stuff

  this also provides me with a decent guide to some of the differences
between red and green...

  thanks again!

Jake, ashbb,

Awesome! I would've replied earlier, but I was playing this great game :)

This seems important to me. Part of the brown shoes work Peter and I are 
working on is to make a reusable Shoes interface. Hopefully, we can use it
to make all colors compatible! But noting the differences is an important 
step in the process...

hey ash -

  awesome!!  this will help me understand purple shoes a lot better too!

  this runs great for me with green, but my version of purple must be
outdated... i notice that you just pushed to purple_shoes a few hours ago,
and added the `append` and `prepend` methods that i'm getting errors about
;)   ...is the new purple_shoes available as a gem yet, or should i clone
the github source?

  thanks again -
