DragonRuby Global Temperature Chart

08 Jun 2019

I have a bit of a soft spot for the Ruby programming language. Something about using it is enjoyable. I’ve mainly used Ruby in the past for websites via Ruby on Rails so I was pretty pleased to see the Ruby games framework DragonRuby get released recently. During my day to day work I do a lot of maths and charting but I’ve never written a chart from scratch before so here is my attempt at a line chart using DragonRuby.

The source code is here and the global temperature data came from here.

So far my impressions of the framework are good. It’s brand new so clearly isn’t feature complete and I’ve had a few problems but the developers are doing a great job of sorting things promptly.
