Green Shoes is a Ruby domain specific language for beautiful Desktop Applications. The Green Shoes dsl is so simple, even your pointy haired boss can understand it. The Green Shoes project is based on _why-the-lucky-stiff's Shoes, except for the following:

Examples

Here is a quick example to get the juices flowing:

require 'green_shoes'

Shoes.app( :width => 250, :height => 250 ) do
  para 'Hello, world!'
  image 'images/shoes.png'
end

There are a lot of samples here in the sample box.
