To use Ruby's Mechanize gem, I just wrote a small Ruby script that allows
messages to be sent to Ruby objects. It runs an augmented XMLRPC server
that caches non-XMLRPC Ruby objects and passes back an identifier to
Here's a snippet of my post to squeak-dev. All of the messages return
proxies to Ruby objects, except the last, which returns an array of strings.
Check the "Wrapping Ruby libraries - what is the best way?" thread for more
...run the following code in Squeak:
agent := Mechanize new.
loginPage := agent get: 'https://www.[a site here].com/home'.
loginForm := loginPage formWith: #action -> '/login'.
loginForm set: 'username' fieldTo: 'username'.
loginForm set: 'password' fieldTo: 'password'.
homePage := loginForm submit.
mailPage := agent get: 'https://www.[a site here].com/messages'.
messageLinks := mailPage linksWith: #href ->
messages := messageLinks collect: [ :link | link click body ].
All of those messages were handled by the generic server code on the Ruby
side except for mailPage linksWith:, which passes a Ruby regex, which is not
supported by XMLRPC.
* still deciding how much info to bring over to Squeak and when e.g. just
the id, the inst vars, etc.
* extending XMLRPC to handle Squeak/Ruby common types, like symbols
* toying with the idea of using DNU to dynamically create the methods on the
ST side (hand-written for now)
* thinking about whether to look at OMeta or PetitParser
