RubyCocoa

RubyCocoa is some cool shit I use regularly, although I don't know shit about how it works. As far as I understand it, it glues Cocoa and Ruby together, hence the name. :)

Using it for a while now, I came to this conclusions:

  • RubyCocoa makes developing Cocoa-Apps much faster (just think about string conversions, string matchings and so on)
  • RubyCocoa Apps compiled on MacOS X 10.5 compiled for MacOS X 10.5 will run on MacOS X 10.6, too.[1]
  • RubyCocoa Apps compiled on MacOS X 10.6 compiled for MacOS X 10.5 will not[2] run on MacOS X 10.6![3]

  1. Tested with XCode 3.2.1 64 Bit on MacOS X 10.6.4
  2. That's quite annoying! I hope Apple will continue support of RubyCocoa!
  3. Tested with MacOS X 10.5.8 and XCode 3.1.3 (pre-release) / MacOS X 10.6.4
