A wonderful, awful idea: ruby in the browser

Christopher Nelson

Other formats

This talk is about the many paths towards getting ruby running in your web browser. I'll first talk about why this is even a good idea. I'll then talk briefly about each approach I've investigated and the differing amounts of FAIL I encountered with each. Next I'll focus on the most promising contender, rubyjs, a ruby compiler which outputs javascript. I'll demonstrate how you can begin using it in your application today with lots of code and live demos.
