Lately I was experimenting with GTK and its Ruby bindings and I decided to write a tutorial introducing this functionality. In this post we are going to create a simple ToDo application (something like what we created here with Ruby on Rails) using the
gtk3 gem a.k.a. the GTK+ Ruby bindings.
In this tutorial we are going to create a Ruby on Rails application that will use elasticsearch to allow users to store and search their content. The sample application will be a stupid simple blog and the data will be, what else, posts. The integration with elasticsearch will be accomplished via the elasticsearch gems for Rails and we will use Kibana to view and check our index configuration.
Update - Nov. 18, 2017
Please visit the updated wiki pages of the project at GitHub. This post is old and does not reflect any changes being made to the application.
I can’t really remember the first time I saw a computer. I do remember though that “working on a computer” was the first thing that came to my mind when I was asked “What do you want to do when you grow up?”.
