Tutorial :Desktop Application Development with Javascript, Python / Ruby


Besides using Appcelerator's Titanium Desktop, are there other approaches to integrating Javascript and Ruby/Python into cross-platform desktop applications? Just trying to get a sense of the landscape here. From searching the web, it seems Titanium may be leading the charge in terms of this type of integration. I wasn't able to find references that suggest you can do something similar in Adobe AIR.

I am interested in building desktop applications that exploit Protovis and possibly other Javascript interactive vis packages for the UI. At the end of the day, I can go the web app route if need be, but being able to develop desktop apps is helpful.

Would appreciate your perspective on this...



There is Pyjamas Desktop, but might be a bit out of date.


You can also script Swing or SWT with JRuby, either directly, or via one of the numerous frameworks.
You might manage to integrate protovis via a webkit or gecko (like redcar does) embedding, or a java html renderer, there are some. Or just use a java viz kit.
