Ruby Tuesday #19 : Silverline

leave a comment »

Even though I’ve been focussing on Python today, I couldn’t let this Tuesday pass without writing something Ruby related.  Silverline is a Ruby on Rails plugin that allows you to write client side Ruby (courtesy of Silverlight.)  Here’s how it works:

Silverline also lets you run pieces of your Rails application on the client, removing the need to write a separate JavaScript or Flash application simply to move functionality to the client. This is accomplished by flagging certain actions as "client", and running the necessary pieces of your Rails application and Rails itself on IronRuby in the browser.

To see it in action, check out this watch.  There’s more demo-ness here.
