Hello:

I've heard more than rumours that the new Xcode 3 development
environment for OSX (Leopard) will have support for Ruby. This means
that the interface builder will work integrated witht the Ruby scripting
capabilities?

Personally I don't really like Interface Builder, too confusing, not
intuitive at all; I wish Interface Builder would be a little more
"RealBASIC" IDE features, that would be nice.

Anyway, anyone knows more about the future release of Interface Builder
(Xcode3) and Ruby?

Thanks in advance.

It's not a rumor, it's published on Apple's site, Leopard will come with
Ruby On Rails preinstalled. As of today, it is already possible to build
Cocoa applications in Ruby with the RubyCocoa framework.

I am not sure InterfaceBuilder is for the same audience as RealBasic.
Consider the case of an engineer, a specialist of some domain who needs
a dedicated calculator program that nobody else needs.
It is so specific that a regular developer would fall asleep simply by
reading the specs. This engineer can only rely on himself to create that
tool. This engineer does not need to understand all the concepts of a UI
builder, s/he needs ONE UI that works for her/him. And RB is the
shortest path between the idea and the solution.

On the other hand IB requires some understanding of objects and of the
MVC pattern.

Have a look at the samples coming with the FxRuby library to work with
the FOX toolkit, they might interest you more than InterfaceBuilder.

Cheers,
J-P
