GUI Creator for Ruby + Fox
Guide Contents |
If you want to do GUI programing in Ruby, there are a number of GUI toolkits, one of them being FOX. This is a multi-platform kit, including versions for Windows and Linux. It is written in C++, but can be used from other languages if an interface is provided, For Ruby, we have FXRuby, written by Lyle Johnson.
Though FXRuby is powerful, writing a good GUI is still intricate, and tedious at times. foxGUIb removes the tedium of writing code to place widgets on screen, setting properties etc, and gives you 'point-and-click' creation.
Who is foxGUIb for?
