Introduction

RubyOSA is a bridge that connects Ruby to the Apple Event Manager infrastructure.

It automatically populates the API (classes, methods, constants) according to the target application's scriptable definition.

RubyOSA is an alternative to RubyAEOSA, and meant to replace it.

RubyOSA is licensied under a BSD license, see the COPYRIGHT file for more information.

More information on the project home page.

Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.4.X or greater
  • ruby 1.8.X or greater
  • libxml-ruby 0.3.8 or greater

Install

The plain old way:

$ ruby extconf.rb
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo make install-extras

make install will only install the core of the bridge, while make install-extras will install some additional tools such as the rdoc-osa utility.

Otherwise, if you are reading GitHub, use the gem:

sudo gem install sstephenson-rubyosa

or

sudo gem install pbosetti-rubyosa

Support

A tutorial is available online at http://rubyosa.rubyforge.org/tutorial.html.

Sample code is available in the `sample' sub-directory.

The rdoc-osa tool can be used to generate API reference documentation for the given application. See its --help flag for more information about how to use it.

Feel free to send feedback to rubyosa-discuss@rubyforge.org.
