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.
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.
