= Ruby D-Bus README

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.

== Requirements

 * Ruby 1.8 (>= 1.8.6?)

 Optionally, for generating the tutorial:
 * Webgen (>= 0.4) 

== Installation

 1. Decompress the Ruby D-Bus tarball (ruby-dbus-<version>.tar.gz).
 2. Move to top-level directory and type:

      $ ruby setup.rb config
      $ ruby setup.rb setup
     ($ su)
      # ruby setup.rb install

    You can also install files in your favorite directory by
    supplying setup.rb some options. Try "ruby setup.rb --help".

== Feature

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.

== Usage

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