Introducing rb-itunes, a cross-platform iTunes API for Ruby


puts ‘Hello World’, it’s very early days … but this little baby of mine now has a name, a home page + project stuff on rubyforge, some documentation and alpha 0.1.2 residing in svn.

The rb-itunes wrapper provides a cross-platform solution to use iTunes in Ruby. If you are a developer currently working on iTunes Ruby scripts with either rb-appscript, rbosa or WIN32OLE, then moving to rb-itunes will give you cross-platform compatibility.

There’s a lot of work to be done before a beta release. So for now, let me know how you like the idea.

    This looks like a great library! Could you please publish this as a gem?

      frankly I don’t know how. It’s also not complete. 😦 but I once used it to sync up the ratings and play counts between two different iTunes libraries – one on my mac mini on 10.5, the other one on a Windows PC running XP. Can you just get a copy svn and do with it what you want? 😉
