2.2.0 / December 16, 2011
QtRuby is a binding of the application framework Qt for Ruby. Korundum is an additional set of bindings for KDE which extend QtRuby.
QtRuby is cross-platform, as all the underlying technologies are platform agnostic.
require 'Qt4' app = Qt::Application.new(ARGV) hello = Qt::PushButton.new('Hello World!') hello.resize(200, 30) hello.show app.exec
The Korundum documentation proposes a more "rubyish" version of this program.
Currently, QtRuby is maintained (if at all) as part of Korundum.
A third-party implementation, named "qtbindings" in the Rubygems repository, has been made due to the lack of active development. Stated goals of the project include keeping an up-to-date version of the Qt framework for Ruby, as well as improving compatibility with non-Linux systems. As of December 2013, it supports Ruby 2.0 and 1.9, but not 1.8.
