UNMAINTAINED

This gem was an exploration to see if GLib could solve the issues I had with APR in mruby-apr. While some of the issues were indeed solved, some other were introduced. The minimal (as in none) dependencies of APR and dead simple compilation make it a much better fit for my MRuby needs.

My future developments - for the time being - will be with mruby-apr.

Original readme follows


MRuby-GLib

Bindings to GLib, providing standard library functionality like File.open & Process.spawn.

Built as an alternative to mruby-apr, with the same goals in mind.

Comparison to MRuby-APR

+1 Glib

GLib maps more directly to the Ruby API's than Apache's APR, thanks mainly to a fuller API and a similar IO abstraction via GIOStreams. Along with the absence of awkward memory pool management, this makes dealing with the code much easier.

While both projects were initially generated with mruby-bindings, the version used for mruby-glib was more mature, generating more idiomatic binding code. (Update: mruby-apr has since been upgraded to the latest mruby-bindings version, and these issues have been resolved.)

+1 APR

mruby-apr does not require linking to LGPL code, and it easier to distribute as a single executable.

mruby-apr is also much smaller, and the C code is better maintained. mruby-glib still has a lot of code bloat leftover from the initial code generation. While this won't hurt you at runtime, your compile times will suffer.

+1 for both

Both libraries will give you familiar file, directory, and environment access methods. Both can spawn processes. Both are cross platform (at least in theory, though I've yet to build mruby-glib on Windows). Both have a CRuby compatible Dir.glob implementation. Both are free :)
