Our friends at Download Squad
have discovered a melding of two scripting worlds: AppleScript and Ruby. RubyOSA
is the darling scriptenstein of these two languages, and while I don't know a lick of either, I'm willing to bet this could be a popular amongst the code ninjas in the audience. Ruby
is a popular language (the 13th most popular, by their numbers
), and it's the foundation of the Ruby on Rails
framework which has given us such handy web 2.0 apps as Backpack
and many more.
This is about the line, however, that I reach where I would need to start pretending I know more about any of these languages, so I'll let you check out RubyOSA
for yourself to see if it gets your coding gears turning.
