Gem Version Build Status Code Climate

ProMotion was created by Infinite Red, a web and mobile development company based in Portland, OR and San Francisco, CA. While you're welcome to use ProMotion, please note that we rely on the community to maintain it. We are happy to merge pull requests and release new versions but are no longer driving primary development.

iPhone Apps, Ruby-style

ProMotion is a RubyMotion gem that makes iOS development more like Ruby and less like Objective-C. It introduces a clean, Ruby-style syntax for building screens that is easy to learn and remember and abstracts a ton of boilerplate UIViewController, UINavigationController, and other iOS code into a simple, Ruby-like DSL.

# app/app_delegate.rb
class AppDelegate < PM::Delegate
  status_bar true, animation: :fade

  def on_load(app, options)
    open RootScreen

# app/screens/root_screen.rb
class RootScreen < PM::Screen
  title "Root Screen"
  nav_bar true

  def on_load
    set_nav_bar_button :right, title: "Help", action: :open_help_screen

  def open_help_screen
    open HelpScreen

# app/screens/help_screen.rb
class HelpScreen < PM::TableScreen
  title "Table Screen"

  def table_data
      title: "Help",
      cells: [
        { title: "About this app", action: :tapped_about },
        { title: "Log out", action: :log_out }

  def tapped_about(args={})
    open AboutScreen

  def log_out
    # Log out!
