With all of the work that has gone into RubyCocoa for Leopard, the
articles that I wrote for my "RubyCocoa Resources" site need an
But lately I've had my hands full with a different project, the new
language that I called "Nu" (http://programming.nu). Nu a Lisp-like
language that I wrote in Objective-C to specifically get around the
impedance mismatches between Ruby (or Python) and Objective-C. You
can read more about those mismatches here:
http://programming.nu/rubycocoa-and-rubyobjc (but I think regular
readers of this list are very aware of them).
For my purposes, Nu has been working out wonderfully, and not only do
I no longer consider serious use of RubyCocoa, I've also found that I
can use Nu for everything that I previously did with Ruby (Nu is
Apple-only, but right now, so am I).
So with that, it's time to decide what to do with "RubyCocoa
Resources". I've heard that Apple had lots of RubyCocoa documentation
in the works for Leopard. If that's enough, then I could just shut
down my site and point the domain to http://rubycocoa.sourceforge.net.
Otherwise, I think it needs a new maintainer. Any volunteers?
