Re: [E-devel] E17 installer script.

Well, there are some other scripts for that purpose, such as Raster's get_e.sh or easy_e17.sh. I've seen script for download/install E17 from CVS even written in Python, but never in Ruby. So, thank you. Ruby fans will like it and maybe will help you to improve it. Also, you may be interested in EFL's Ruby bindings to write one very nice GUI app for us. :-)

What's the license? BSD?

    I've written a small script that downloads e17 from CVS and builds it.

    It's written in Ruby. Sorry if you don't like that :). You'll need

    It also does a few trivial checks for a few things (cvs, make,
    autoconf, gettext, libtoolize, pkg-config, autoheader).

    It's output is rather clean as it logs the command's output to a
    log file.

    There's a configuration file (which is written in ruby as well)
    that you
    can modify.

    The source is commented and so's the config file.
    If anyone finds this useful, or interesting or has patches or
    drop me a line.

    Make it executable and run ./my_e or just run it with 'ruby my_e'

    In the future, I will modify the script to stop when something doesn't
    build properly (or prompt the user or whatever). Right now it doesn't
    but a simple ^C will stop it.

    Hope this is useful. Cheers.

I've seen Ruby-EFL and I do plan to write a couple of nice apps with it. I just haven't had that much time lately (does this seem familiar? :) )

I can do a bit of C so I might try to do things in C as well.

And as for the license, yes, it's BSD (it says so at the beginning of the my_e.rb file).
