any plans making foreman compatible with Windows? Currently, you get a load error (due to pty library) when foreman is started...
I don't currently have a Windows machine to test with. Would you be interested in getting it working?
Any updates on this? What kind of help can i do?
The ruby PTY library does not work on Windows due to a lack of pseudo terminals. I've got Windows installed now in a VM and will be looking into alternatives, though I'd appreciate any help.
Hey there. I have this problem as well. I'm happy to help test, try things, etc. although my Ruby chops are too limited to probably solve the problem myself. Let me know if/how I can help.
I'm running on windows, and would love to help.
What's the windows compatible alternative to PTY?
There really isn't one. You might check if standard popen and friends will return unbuffered I/O on Windows. The reason I used PTY on *nix was that it seemed to be the only way to get unbuffered I/O.
I'm also interested in using foreman on windows. Is there some likelihood this will be added, or would I be better looking for alternatives ?
Due to a number of limitations of Ruby on Windows, it seems unlikely. Ruby on Windows does not have pty support, nor does it have the ability to fork()
I've started http://github.com/ddollar/foreman-windows to try to create a Foreman implementation in C# to be a bit more native with Windows.
how do you install the foreman-windows version from ddollar?
