    SIMPLE! and INTUITIVE! GUI BUILDER for RUBY?

    Is there any, SIMPLE software that I can use to build GRAPHIC INTERFACES
    for Ruby scripts? a kind of VISUALbasic or REALbasic or even Xcode
    alike?

    I know I've asked this before, BUT! I forgot to mention... I'm a graphic
    designer, NOT A PROGRAMMER! I use Mac not LINUX, so don't know anything
    about compiling and that things. I'm used to double click on icons and
    things "magically happen" Did I made myself clear?

    I've browsing many sites that has this "so called" simple applications,
    BUT! is there anything really simple that I don't have to build,
    compile, bind or whatever other "strange" thing?

    I really felt in love with RUBY, I think I'm doing very well with it,
    but I would like to apply its power through something else beside
    terminals or pure script. For example I can make a simple yet fully
    functional WordProcessor within hours in RealBasic, I would like to use
    the power of Ruby for handling text in a more "VISUAL WAY".

    I'm in a point that would be very frustrating to put my learned
    knowledge about Ruby in the Trash can, help!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, please spare everyone the "I'm so exasperated" style of writing, at least until a thread has disappointed you.

    Thanks for the ...answer? no seriously thanks! and yeah maybe you are right, but in fact I'm a little exasperated, I've been through maaaaany forums looking for a straight answer and I always get links to other sites, thinghs that are not clear nor easy.

    Sorry about that, but thanks again for replying anyway.

    Uhhh, I kind of can't blame him since you just sent him a link to exactly the thing he just expressed exasperation about.

    Since you haven't articulated why, I'm going to take wild guesses at why you think FoxGUIb is inadequate for his needs.

    "FoxGUIb may be helpful for a programmer, but it is clearly too technical for a non-programmer. Xcode provides much more non-programmer tools."

    Is it that? That's my best guess! Worse guesses follow!

    "FoxGUIb may be useful for him, but that link doesn't provide an easy to follow route for him to set up and use that software. I bet if you could link to a tutorial, that would be more helpful."

    Hmmm, less likely. But this is a fun game! I'll keep trying.

    "Linking directly to FoxGUIb doesn't provide enough background. Shouldn't you, I don't know, explain what Fox is first? And what is Fox?"

    Hey, that's not a bad point!

    Ok, I give up.

    How about because it requires him to manually compile it from a command line after he specifically stated that he doesn't know anything about compiling or a command line?

    I believe that at this point the answer to the original question is that it doesn't exist yet.
