    Glimmer DSL for LibUI (Prerequisite-Free Ruby Desktop Development GUI Library - No need to pre-install any prerequisites. Just install the gem and have platform-independent GUI that just works)

  • Rouge

    A pure Ruby code highlighter that is compatible with Pygments

    Brandon Weaver has recently contacted me on the Glimmer Gitter to ask questions about Glimmer DSL for LibUI. He also mentioned the node pattern tool written by Marc-André Lafortune (a fellow Rubyist I know in Montreal), which is hosted on Heroku. Brandon said he was excited about the possibility of implementing something similar in pure Ruby using Glimmer DSL for LibUI by leveraging the rouge syntax highlighting gem. He has even blogged about the Ruby Tooling subject in the past with the title "Future of Ruby - AST Tooling", which Matz (creator of Ruby) has alluded to before.
