Up Topic Gosu / Gosu Showcase / Chingu Example Loader

I have assembled a rudimentary Welcome Screen setup which
automagically loads the Chingu Examples:

    /.../ch_loader$ ruby ch_loader.rb


It loads the different Examples from a Main Menu.

A more detailed description is included in the README.

EDIT:  ch_loader.rb has been tested on Ruby v-1.9.1, v-1.9.2,
          and v-1.9.3. It seems to work fine on all of the above.


This "game" is still under progress.

I am posting in case people want to "look over my shoulder" and
make suggestions along the way.

This is an offshoot of the GalaxyCraft project. I am trying to create a
GalaxyCraft welcome screen.

I am a very, very, very noob, and I am open to suggestions.

Thanks to spooner, lol_o2, and BlueScope for their helpful suggestions.

Feel free to fork!

Good work and thanks, keep going.

Thank you for the kind words. I have had to take a break for a few days, because the land lady stopped by to visit, and she chewed me out because the house is filthy, and the plants are all overgrown, so I've been focused on yardwork and housework for a few days. But I will get back to work on the Example Loader, Galaxy Craft, and trying to figure out how to load lol_o2's games during the next week.

Example loaders are a great idea. Digging into the Gosu and Chingu gems to run examples is a real pain. If you want to polish this thing to perfection, I think it would be a good idea to publish it as a gem with a binary, so people can run it without messing with git and file paths at all, and maybe add a hotkey that opens the current example in a text editor per platform.

Hi jlnr thanks for the positive feedback. I am still a long ways from having a polished finished product. Some of the examples load fine, but some are more complicated. Your suggestions to eventually publish as a gem and (in another thread) to check out the rdocs are well-received and indicate to me that I still have a LOT to learn about programming.

I made it through the first few Chingu examples before I started getting stuck with some issues that occur when I change a Chingu::Window class to a Chingu::GameState class. I am new to programming, so a lot of times I don't know exactly what I'm doing, but the project is still slowly moving forward. I have been on hiatus for a few months due to lots of personal stuff I had going on. But now I am back, and I am ready to keep trying to figure out how it all works. I will post when I make more significant progress on the example loader.
