Just found FXRuby - as far as I currently know it is a Desktop App GUI Framework for Ruby. Because I just wondered which programming language is the one to use for desktop apps, I promptly installed the gem with the following command:

sudo gem install fxruby

After some seconds of installation process I ran the interactive ruby shell (irb) and did the following (copied from the tutorial page):

require ‘fox16’\ include Fox\ theApp = FXApp.new\ theMainWindow = FXMainWindow.new(theApp, “Hello”)\ theApp.create\ theMainWindow.show\ theApp.run

While running those commands you will recognize the opening X11 environment. My first thought was: WTF gimme more alias shit for the very same commands. Am I the only one for whom those commands sounds all equals???

I will give this stuff a try and currently wonder, how I can just give such an app to another person…?
