Ruby D-Bus provides an implementation of the D-Bus protocol such that the D-Bus system can be used in the Ruby programming language.


  • Ruby 1.8.7 or 1.9


  • gem install ruby-dbus


Ruby D-Bus currently supports the following features:

  • Connecting to local buses.
  • Accessing remote services, objects and interfaces.
  • Invoking methods on remote objects synchronously and asynchronously.
  • Catch signals on remote objects and handle them via callbacks.
  • Remote object introspection.
  • Walking object trees.
  • Creating services and registering them on the bus.
  • Exporting objects with interfaces on a bus for remote use.
  • Rubyish D-Bus object and interface syntax support that automatically allows for introspection.
  • Emitting signals on exported objects.


See some of the examples in the examples/ subdirectory of the tarball. Also, check out the included tutorial (in Markdown format) in doc/ or view it online on .
