Just a thought that a gosu web player would be awesome (similar to flash). I have never programmed any web plugins and have no idea what's going on under the surface of gosu, so currently i'm not really able to work on it or estimate the amount of work to do it.
It might be doable with Silverlight and IronRuby but it would require rewriting Gosu from the ground up, in C#, using DirectX calls instead of OpenGL. It would be a really cool project (and, for once, we'd have a good
platform for browser games), but it kind of sounds like more trouble than it's worth.
I wouldn't go for IronRuby since IronPython development & support ended a while ago and people are also expecting the same fate for IronRuby.
Well, that's pretty much your one choice if you want Ruby in the browser. jRuby doesn't work too well as an applet yet.
I definitely think WebGL is the way to go for this... not Silverlight or Flash.
Now would be a good time for such a project too, since a lot of people are looking for game frameworks to use with HTML5...
Well, if we're going that route with a different language binding for the browser version, I'd go with CoffeeScript
or (if you must) haXe
natively on the desktop, which is kind of stupid awesome.
