I’ve been swimming in the deep waters as has contributer @passenger. Laying the ground work for a better future.
No, really we are. It’s also spring time and outside calls. The potatoes in the garden look good for this early. I’ve been looking for a new car – an endeavor that gear heads take very seriously.
Still, I did managed to come up with a scheme to handle gems better but that’s a developer improvement you say?! On the other hand I’ve got nokogiri built in to Shoes 3.2.23 instead of hpricot. That turned to be a huge effort. On the other hand, if the gem can be built by Ruby (all platforms) , it can be included into a Shoes build, if you build Shoes from source. It’s not difficult one you know what to do which turns out to be ‘a wee bit tricky’. Anyway, that’s in the Shoes 3.2.23 bets Plus some bug fixes and tweaks.
At the moment, you can’t package your Shoes app with platform dependent binary (‘C‘) gems. I have a cunning plan.
