Hello world!

07Feb09

This is my first post at Ruby On Mobile.

I do currently work as Ruby On Rails Web developer, but got interested in mobile app development, even though I don’t own any smartphones, such as iPhone, T-mobile G1 nor Blackberry.

Since I don’t know anything about mobile development nor any of mobile app development languages such as ObjectiveC(iPhone), Java(Android, Blackberry), nor C++ (Symbian), first thing I did was to search if there were any way I could write mobile app using web technologies, like AdobeAir does for desktop app.

Embedding WebKit web browser into your mobile app locally seems interesting way to achieve mobile app development, but it seems not matured yet.

Then, I found this article.

Not only being able to use HTML/CSS/Javascript, you can use Ruby to write mobile app. That sounds great!! The Framework (Rhodes and Rhosync) are inspired by Ruby On Rails, so they use same MVC , ORM, and so on.

As soon as I read the article, I started following tutorial provided from Rhomobile, the company behind Rhodes and Rhomobile.

At this blog, I will write about my experience playing with Rhodes/Rhosync.

Since I named this blog as “Ruby On Mobile”, I will write about other Ruby related mobile projects and libraries as I find. I am also thinking about learning basic of Android, iPhone and Mobile Website development, so that I can compare which approach suits developing what type of mobile services.

    I am a desktop app developer, but I am in the similar lines with you. Got curious about mobile app development; but never owned a smart phone. I badly want to do it in Ruby, though I am familiar with other languages. Looks like your blog will suite my needs to learn the trade. Keep posting.

  6. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question
    that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I
    was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Many thanks!

    there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!
