In general when you have a good idea you’re not alone. I started getting traffic from another blog. Dave Orme has developed an interesting framework: XScalaWT. According to the acknowledgements in his blog he found some of my ideas useful to his framework. I haven’t tried it yet, it looks similar to my DSL but his framework is much more complete and he solved the interaction part too. Check it out, it looks very promising!
Also, to my great surprise someone uploaded my source to github here. There is even a Maven pom now to build and run the thing.
I thought I’d share the links since the showed up in my statistics. Enjoy :)
Update: Randin pointed out that the link to xscalawt was broken so I changed the destination. Also Randin thought this link seemed interestong so I provide it here aswell.

At Agile 2008 I was calmly coding together with Daniel Brolund in the open space area. We were interrupted by a guy that asked us if we did any coding in Ruby and if we did he will hold a lightning-talk about a framework he had put together to create SWT-gui:s using JRuby. Interestingly enough I had thought about how GUI-coding could probably be improved in a language such as Ruby so I reluctantly stopped what I was doing and watched the lightning talk. This was the first time I ever saw Glimmer and it totally blew me away!
