What's new in this version (0.7):

Version 0.7.0:

This version shifts to using a separate Ruboto core package, making the install 95% smaller. The shared core package significantly reduces space requirements, build and install times.

- General: monospaced font, file name for errors, ruboto scripts in apk, WebViewClient callback

- Demos: demo-irb-server syntax highlighting, demo-webview-editor, demo-ruboto-irb line


Interactive Ruby running on Android. Edit, save, and run scripts on the phone. Great for learning, prototyping, and small apps. Ruboto IRB taps the power of JRuby to open up the Android API.

*** Note: This version will prompt you for a second install from the market. This second install contains the bulk of the code (JRuby and the Ruby stdlib), and can be shared among other Ruboto projects.

*** Note 2: If you had a previous install and are experiencing problems, make sure you removed ruboto.rb (and the ruboto directory) from /sdcard/jruby.

*** Note 3: Why so many permissions? This app uses very few permissions on its own. Most of the permissions are requested to make them available to any scripts that you may want to write.

Follow the ruboto-irb project on The ruboto (formerly ruboto-core) project adds the ability to package scripts into applications.

This install places several demo scripts onto you device (generally /sdcard/jruby). Look to those scripts for examples of how to use JRuby to interact with Android. The demo-irb-server.rb script allows you to interact with you device scripts over wifi, making it much easier to edit your code.

Many of the samples don't run and gets does not work. Samsung vibrant.

This is a great idea, and I love having access to Ruby on my phone. Sometimes crashes when I try to access advanced Ruby functionality, like file i/o.

finally got it to install after some previous issues...

Arguably a more powerful way to interact with the Android API than Java. It "just works", it's a thing of beauty.
