yet another gui question: shoes vs ruby-gnome2

yet another gui question: shoes vs ruby-gnome2

Hi,

sometime ago when I was asking about building a GUI for my ruby apps
someone suggested to just start with ruby-gnome to fully understand
everything from the ground up.

If anyone has experience on both these tools, how different are they
comparing the time needed to learn and time needed to build something.

regards,
seba

Shoes is more like HTML and has that ruby-feel to it. I doubt it will 
take you much longer than 15 minutes to learn the basics. After 30 
minutes you should be able to build most apps.

Ruby-gnome2 is more or less just a Ruby binding for GTK+ and it should 
take you a while longer to learn. Depending on what you want to do, 
Ruby-gnome2 might be a bit more powerful at the expense of complexity 
and less clean code.

I suggest you just look at some code examples and pick the one you feel 
the most comfortable with.

Hi Sevastjan,

Green Shoes uses Ruby/GTK2. So, it's okay to write your app with Green
Shoes and Ruby-gnome2. For example, J's gsWax: https://github.com/lljk/gsWax

hi Seba,

  just got back from a LONG trip/flight/lackofsleep - so i'll have to write
more back about this soon...  i learned to use ruby/gtk2 first, and then
shoes - made me realize how awesome shoes is!  (are?)

  gtk2 and green shoes play very nicely together - i'll explain better when
i'm a bit more coherent ;)

  shoes on!!

 - j
