[ANN] RubyCocoa 0.3.0 and RubyAEOSA 0.2.1

RubyCocoa 0.3.0 and RubyAEOSA 0.2.1 released.

http://www.imasy.or.jp/~hisa/mac/rubycocoa/
http://www.imasy.or.jp/~hisa/mac/rubyaeosa/

In Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar), RubyCocoa 0.3 and RubyAEOSA 0.2 is
available with only pre-installed Ruby 1.6.7. You don’t need to
install Ruby yourself. These are released with binary distribution as
".pkg" format in addition to conventional “tgz” source. So insalling
is easy. Enjoy!

In Mac OS X 10.2, Cocoa class for AppleScript / AppleEvent added.
Therefore it’s possible to execute AppleScript only with RubyCocoa
without RubyAEOSA. In addition, Using “irb” with RubyCocoa and
RubyAEOSA is pretty stable.

Primary difference with previous version:

  • Not depend on LibRuby.framework and RubyCocoa.framework

  • Launchable RubyCocoa application on a system which is installed
    only Jaguar and RubyCocoa binary package.

  • available to develop RubyCocoa GUI application on a system which
    is installed Jaguar, Developer Tools (w/BSDSDK) and RubyCocoa
    binary package.

== What is RubyCocoa ?

RubyCocoa is a Ruby library for using Cocoa Objects on Mac OS X in
Ruby scripts. You can use RubyCocoa for:

  • using Cocoa objects in Ruby Script
  • writing Cocoa application with Ruby and Interface Builder
  • exploration of Cocoa with irb
  • prototyping of a Cocoa Application
  • development of a small scale simple Cocoa Application
  • Wrapping OSX GUI for Ruby script

== What is RubyAEOSA ?

RubyAEOSA is Ruby extension libraries for using AppleEvent and OSA
Scripting Component (OSA = Open Scripting Architecture) on MacOS
X. Using RubyAEOSA with a Ruby script or RubyCocoa applicaiton, you
can:

  • execute AppleScript and get a result
  • send AppleEvent and get a result
  • create AppleEvent object (AEDesc)

This binary package is for Mac OS X 10.2 or later. There is not a
binary package for Mac OS X 10.1.x. I have not written this thing
clearly, so I may confuse anyone.

I just want to be the first to thank you for so quickly getting this to
run under Jaguar…and having a binary download! I can now convert all
of my OS X friends to be Ruby programmers ;-). Seriously, this library
is extremely powerful and I think gives Ruby a big advantage on the Mac
platform vs. the other installed languages (Perl, Python, PHP).

Keep up the wonderful work (balanced against having a life, of course
:slight_smile:

Best Regards,

Rich
