Description

Glimmer DSL for Opal is an experimental proof-of-concept web GUI adapter for Glimmer desktop apps (i.e. apps built with Glimmer DSL for SWT). It webifies them via Rails, allowing Ruby desktop apps to run on the web via Opal Ruby without changing a line of code. Apps may then be custom-styled by web designers for the web with standard CSS.

Glimmer DSL for Opal successfully reuses the entire Glimmer core DSL engine in Opal Ruby inside a web browser, and as such inherits the full range of powerful Glimmer desktop data-binding capabilities for the web.

Glimmer DSL for Opal 0.7.4 (Pure Ruby Web GUI)

Gem Version Join the chat at https://gitter.im/AndyObtiva/glimmer

You can finally live in pure Ruby land on the web!

Glimmer DSL for Opal is an alpha gem that enables building web GUI in pure Ruby via Opal on Rails.

Use in one of two ways:

  • Direct: build the GUI of web apps with the same friendly desktop GUI Ruby syntax as Glimmer DSL for SWT, thus requiring a lot less code than web technologies that is in pure Ruby and avoiding opaque web concepts like 'render' and 'reactive'. No HTML/JS/CSS skills are even required. Web designers may be involved with CSS styling only if needed.
  • Adapter: auto-webify Glimmer desktop apps (i.e. apps built with Glimmer DSL for SWT) via Opal on Rails without changing a line of code. Just insert them as a single require statement in a Rails app, and BOOM! They're running on the web! Apps may then optionally be custom-styled for the web by web designers with standard CSS if needed.

Tic Tac Toe Sample

Add the following require statement to app/assets/javascripts/application.rb in a Glimmer setup Rails app:

require 'glimmer-dsl-opal/samples/elaborate/tic_tac_toe'

Glimmer GUI code from [glimmer-dsl-opal/samples/elaborate/tic_tac_toe.rb](lib/glimmer-dsl-opal/samples/elaborate/tic_tac_toe.rb):

# ...
    @shell = shell {
      text "Tic-Tac-Toe"
      minimum_size 150, 178
      composite {
        grid_layout 3, true
        (1..3).each { |row|
          (1..3).each { |column|
            button {
              layout_data :fill, :fill, true, true
              text        bind(@tic_tac_toe_board[row, column], :sign)
              enabled     bind(@tic_tac_toe_board[row, column], :empty)
              font        style: :bold, height: 20
              on_widget_selected {
                @tic_tac_toe_board.mark(row, column)
              }
            }
          }
        }

Background

The original idea behind Glimmer DSL for Opal was that you start by having a Glimmer DSL for SWT desktop app that communicates with a Rails API for any web/cloud concerns. The pure Ruby Glimmer DSL for SWT is very simple, so it is more productive to build GUI in it since it does not go through a server/client request/response cycle and can be iterated on locally with a much shorter feedback cycle. Once the GUI and the rest of the app is built. You simply embed it in a Rails app as a one line require statement after adding the Glimmer DSL for Opal gem, and BOOM, it just works on the web inside a web browser with the same server/client communication you had in the desktop app (I am working on adding minimal support for net/http in Opal so that desktop apps that use it continue to work in a web browser. Until then, just use Opal-jQuery http support). That way, you get two apps for one: desktop and web.

Part of the idea is that web browsers just render GUI widgets similar to those of a desktop app (after all a web browser is a desktop app), so whether you run your GUI on the desktop or on the web should just be a low-level concern, hopefully automated completely with Glimmer DSL for Opal.

Last but not least, you would likely want some special branding on the web, so you can push that off to a web designer who would be more than happy to do the web graphic design and customize the look and feel with pure CSS (no need for programming with Ruby or JavaScript). This enables a clean separation of concerns and distribution of tasks among developers and designers, let alone saving effort on the web GUI by reusing the desktop GUI as a base right off the bat.

Alternatively, web developers may directly use Glimmer DSL for Opal to build the GUI of web apps since it is as simple as desktop development, thus requiring a lot less code that is in pure Ruby only (as demonstrated in examples below) and avoiding opaque web concepts like 'render' and 'reactive' due to treating GUI as persistent just like desktop apps do. No HTML/JS/CSS skills are even required. Still, web designers may be involved with CSS only if needed, thanks to the clean semantic markup Glimmer DSL for Opal automatically produces.

Principles

  • Live purely in Rubyland via the Glimmer GUI DSL, completely oblivious to web browser technologies.
  • Forget Routers! Glimmer DSL for Opal supports auto-routing of custom shells (windows), which are opened as separate tabs in a web browser with automatically generated routes and bookmarkable URLs.
  • HTML is strictly made for creating documents not interactive applications. As such, software engineers can avoid and focus on creating web applications with Glimmer DSL for Opal in pure Ruby while content creators and web designers are the ones responsible for creating HTML documents for content purposes only as HTML was originally intended. As such, Glimmer web GUI built by software engineers gets embedded in the body of a web page with content around it maintained by content creators and web designers. This achieves a correct separation of responsibilities and better maintainability.

Pre-requisites

Setup

(NOTE: Keep in mind this is a very early experimental and incomplete alpha. If you run into issues, try to go back to a previous revision. Also, there is a slight chance any issues you encounter are fixed in master or some other branch that you could check out instead)

The glimmer-dsl-opal gem is a Rails Engine gem that includes assets.

Please follow the following steps to setup.

Install a Rails 5 gem:

gem install rails -v5.2.4.4

Start a new Rails 5 app:

rails new glimmer_app_server

Add the following to Gemfile:

gem 'opal-rails', '~> 1.1.2'
gem 'opal-async', '~> 1.2.0'
gem 'opal-jquery', '~> 0.4.4'
gem 'glimmer-dsl-opal', '~> 0.7.4'
gem 'glimmer-dsl-xml', '~> 1.1.0', require: false
gem 'glimmer-dsl-css', '~> 1.1.0', require: false

Follow (opal-rails)[https://github.com/opal/opal-rails] instructions, basically the configuration of: config/initializers/assets.rb

Edit config/initializers/assets.rb and add the following at the bottom:

Opal.use_gem 'glimmer-dsl-opal'

Run:

rails g scaffold welcome

Modify config/routes.rb:

root to: 'welcomes#index'

Add the following line to the top of an empty app/assets/javascripts/application.rb (replacing application.js)

require 'glimmer-dsl-opal' # brings opal and other dependencies automatically

Edit app/views/layouts/application.html.erb and add the following below other stylesheet_link_tag declarations:

<%= stylesheet_link_tag    'glimmer/glimmer', media: 'all', 'data-turbolinks-track': 'reload' %>

Clear the file app/views/welcomes/index.html.erb from any content.

Open app/assets/javascripts/application.rb, add a Document.ready? block, and add inside it Glimmer GUI DSL code or a require statement for one of the samples below.

Document.ready? do
  # require-statement/code goes here.
end

Example to confirm setup is working:

Document.ready? do
  include Glimmer

  shell {
    fill_layout
    text 'Example to confirm setup is working'
    label {
      text "Welcome to Glimmer DSL for Opal!"
      foreground :red
      font height: 24
    }
  }.open
end

Samples

Follow the instructions below to try out glimmer-dsl-swt samples webified via glimmer-dsl-opal

Also, this external sample app contains all the samples mentioned below configured inside a Rails 5 Opal app with all the pre-requisites ready to go for convenience:

Some of the screenshots might be out of date with updates done to samples in both glimmer-dsl-swt and glimmer-dsl-opal.
