The Ruby Connector For .NET – Available Now, Free!
We have today released the Ruby Connector, a drag-and-drop widget that lets .NET programs communicate with Ruby programs. This gives you the ability to create visual applications, designed using the Visual Studio form designer and a .NET language such as C#, VB .NET or Chrome and communicate directly with Ruby programs being run by the standard Ruby interpreter (ruby.exe).
We have decided to make the Ruby Connector freely available to everyone. You may use it royalty-free in your own applications, whether for personal or commercial use (please read the license agreement which is included in the Zip download). It can be used with standard installations of Visual Studio and does not require Ruby In Steel (though, naturally, Ruby In Steel would be highly advantageous when developing for Ruby!).
The Ruby Connector is provided with a 35 page PDF tutorial and reference manual, plus seven sample projects – five written in C# and Ruby, one written in VB .NET and Ruby; one written in Chrome and Ruby.
We’ll be providing hints, tips, help and tutorials to the Ruby Connector here on the Blog, so, if you are interested in this, be sure to make a return visit from time to time...
The Ruby Connector is available now from The Download Page.
