Starting a Clojure Desktop Application We’re starting up our first desktop application in Clojure. We’re a heavy vim and ruby shop. We’ve done several desktop applications in JRuby. This is the first time we’ve tackled swing UIs and GUI testing in Clojure. It’s still early in the process, but here’s what we’ve found so far.
Is JRuby a realistic candidate for authoring complex desktop applications? Yes. UPDATE (Jan. 30, 2009): Our client has cleared us to spill our guts on the details of the project discussed here now that it’s complete… Ruby for Desktop Applications? Yes we can.
