What is Ruby?
« on: August 11, 2007, 08:51:19 AM »
I keep seeing references to Ruby which is apparently a scripting language.  Could someone tell me more about it?  Is it available on Windows?

Deven,

Ruby is indeed a scripting language and is available on a variety of platforms.  We use it for our Export and Upload features in 4.5.2.  With Ruby and Photo Mechanic, one can write custom exporters and uploaders.

You can learn more about Ruby from places like these:

http://www.rubygarden.org/Ruby/page/show/HomePage
http://www.rubycentral.com/pickaxe/

You can learn more about Ruby templates for Photo Mechanic by looking at the various built in templates that come with Photo Mechanic.
