It is currently very incomplete. Many language features and the vast majority of the standard library are not implemented.
Inspired by MacRuby (though far less cool or useful).
- Objective-J and Cappuccino
- Ruby (1.8?)
- ParseTree gem
- Narwhal (for "cappruby" command)
To see a simple example of the compiler in action run:
cat TestApp/main.rb | bin/ruby2objj
The output can of course be concatenated to a file:
bin/ruby2objj TestApp/main.rb > TestApp/main.j
To run TestApp using the Rack server, ensure that the "Frameworks" directory contains the Cappuccino frameworks (assumes the Cappuccino tools are installed):
capp gen -f TestApp
Command-line and Narwhal integration
To run the
cappruby command line REPL make sure cappruby was installed via tusk, or you have added it's "bin" to your PATH.
~/git/cappruby $ cappruby capprb> puts 'hello world' hello world capprb>
Alternatively, run from within narwhal:
~/git/cappruby $ narwhal > require("cappruby").run() capprb> puts 'hello world' hello world capprb>
Run simple Ruby files using Narwhal:
~/git/cappruby $ narwhal test.rb hello world
