Examples

require 'accessibility/core'

app = Accessibility::Element.application_for 276  # PID for some app
app.attributes

window = app.attribute 'AXMainWindow'
window.attributes
window.attribute 'AXPosition'
window.set 'AXPosition', CGPoint.new(100, 100)

TODO

  • run static analyzer on code and change warning level to -Weverything
  • remove all old MacRuby related code
  • more descriptive error handling
  • handle stirng encodings that are not UTF8
  • sign the gem
  • binary gem packaging (via rake-compiler)

Tests

Currently, the tests are all run as one task. You can run individual test files if needed. This is not ideal, but not a high priority for me right now.

To properly run tests, you must run them under CRuby and also under MacRuby and get the same results.
