Topic: Desktop Application

I have developed a ROR application. But I want to convert it to a Desktop application. Is it possible ? If so please help !!!

Re: Desktop Application

Ruby on Rails is a Web framework. Of course you can reuse the existing AR models but it's up to you to choose what to use to build a real GUI desktop application, - FXRuby, Shoes, Titanium ,etc. As far as I know, there is notion of 'converting' an existing RoR application to a GUI desktop one.
It's two things that are absolutely different.

Re: Desktop Application

If you run a server on your local machine and access the application via a browser to a local web address you basicly have a desktop application.  You cannot access it without a browser though.

No conversion is needed.

Try to answer the question: what is the difference between a desktop application and a WEB-based application?
