This is a Ruby wrapper that lets you harness Processing’s awesome power. 
It makes Processing act in a slightly more Shoes-like way, and replaces 
the ol’ crusty faux-Java-1.4-syntax sandals that Processing usually 
wears with some new Ruby slippers. So, here’s what you’ll need to make 
it work:

Download the most recent JRuby, and make sure that the jruby command is 
reachable in your path.

From inside this folder, you can run the samples like so:

jruby samples/jwishy.rb

Because it’s Ruby, you can also load the samples via jirb, and then alter 
them on the fly. Live coding, anyone?


Changelog:

Revision 0.8
  * Ruby-Processing can now export Mac applications! Running 
    script/application my_sketch.rb will create MySketch.app, 
    complete with all of its data and libraries. If you have 
    a .icns file inside of your data folder, it will become 
    the app's icon.
    
  * Added a mathematical Fern sample. It's a port of Luis 
    Correia's java original, with algorithms from Wikipedia.
    
  * Sketches now have a library_loaded? method, so that you can 
    check if a library has been started successfully, and 
    conditionally enable things. (Good for OpenGL.)
    
  * The Boids library is now about 40% faster. It also comes with
    an example in library/boids/samples.
    
  * Specs have been started both for exporting and for Ruby-
    Processing itself.

Revision 0.7
  * Thanks to MenTaLguY, once again, for work on the JRubyApplet, OpenGL 
    is now a first-class citizen. If you're using OpenGL in your sketch, 
    the applet exporter should just work. It has also been moved and 
    renamed, so now you can use it like:
    
    script/applet my_sketch.rb
  
  * An app generator has been added for getting started. It'll give you 
    a template for an empty Ruby-Processing sketch, with setup and draw
    methods and all that. Usage:
    
    script/generate my_sketch 800 600
    
    Will create a file called my_sketch.rb, with a title of "My Sketch",
    800 pixels wide and 600 pixels tall. Width and height are optional.
    
  * Ruby-Processing now includes its first pure-Ruby library, a port 
    of Tom de Smedt's "Boids", for algorithmic flocking.

Revision 0.6
  * Now we're baking up some applet pie. The applet_tree script will 
    take your Ruby-Processing sketch, export it as an applet, and 
    generate an HTML page for you to post. It's way easier now than it 
    would have been before. (thanks to MenTaLguY.) Use it like so:
    
    ./applet_tree my_sketch.rb
    
    But there are caveats: Applets don't work with native libraries, so 
    no OpenGL. If you're requiring other files that aren't part of the 
    standard Ruby distro, you'll need to include them as libraries, which 
    means: Drop them in a folder inside of "library". Use
    load_ruby_library("folder_name") or load_java_library() to load 'em.
    These methods replace the previous load_library(). Ruby libs will 
    load the .rb with the same name as the folder. Java libs will just 
    load up all of the .jars in the folder.
    
    Demos — all of the standard samples are available as applets:
    http://fiercefrontiers.com/applets/jwishy/
    http://fiercefrontiers.com/applets/tree/
    http://fiercefrontiers.com/applets/circle_collision/
    http://fiercefrontiers.com/applets/reflection/
    

Revision 0.5
  * Ruby-Processing gets easy native library support. Now you can take 
    Processing libraries, drop them in the library folder, and load them 
    up like so (inside your sketch):
    
    load_library "opengl"
    
    It works by loading up all of the .jars in that folder, and setting
    the java.library.path to that folder, so that the native extensions
    can be found.
    
  * Full Screen OpenGL demo added, but you'll need to copy over the 
    OpenGL library to use it.

Revision 0.4
  * Ruby-Processing goes fullscreen. Just pass :full_screen => true 
    into the options when you’re starting up your app. Like so:

    MyApp.new(:title => "MyApp", :full_screen => true)

  * Because Processing has just so many methods, you can now search 
    through them: find_method "method_name"

Revision 0.3
  * Processing::App.current will give you a handle on the app. (Useful 
    in jirb).
  * samples/jwishy.rb has some new hooks for live coding.
  * circle_collision and tree samples added (Joe Holt)
