Remote Control Wrapper
You can get the original version of this code from
Remote Control Wrapper is an Objective-C wrapper for the Apple remote control.
It was modified to be Obj-C 2 compatible and compile as a framework to be used with MacRuby.
Note that to use this framework with MacRuby you need to use a BridgeSupport file (generated for you in the repo).
A compiled version of the framework is available in the download section.
Here is a quick implementation example using MacRuby and HotCocoa:
require 'hotcocoa'
framework File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), 'vendor', 'AppleRemote.framework')
class Application
include HotCocoa
def start
application :name => "AppRemote" do |app|
app.delegate = self
window :frame => [100, 100, 500, 500], :title => "Appremote" do |win|
win << label(:text => "Application Remote", :layout => {:start => false})
win.will_close { exit }
@remoteControl = AppleRemote.alloc.initWithDelegate(self)
# Callback triggered when the remote is being used.
# === Parameters
# button<Fixnum>:: button id
# pressed<Boolean>:: is the button pressed or released
# remote<AppleRemote>::
def sendRemoteButtonEvent(button, pressedDown:pressed, remoteControl:remote)
p "button pressed #{button} #{pressed ? 'clicked' : 'released'}"
