What is wxRuby?

wxRuby is an open source GUI toolkit for the Ruby programming
language. It provides a Ruby interface to the cross-platform
wxWidgets C++ GUI framework (formerly known as wxWindows).
wxRuby is intended to dramatically extend Ruby's usefulness in
rapid prototyping and general UI development.

wxWidgets is a mature, cross-platform GUI toolkit that uses native
GUI widgets. This means that wxRuby applications can integrate
seamlessly on each supported platform, and can behave like the
user expects.
