If you have any trouble getting SciRuby to work and are too impatient to seek assistance, most of the SciRuby components are already available as individual packages. We recommend you try out the following component gems:
- Visualization: rubyvis, plotrb
- Statistics and Probability: statsample, distribution
- Numeric: minimization, integration, nmatrix
The SciRuby gem is currently on hold. Frankly, we don’t know what to put in it. In the end it’ll probably end up just kind of directing the installation of other gems. In other words, you’ll install the SciRuby gem, and that’ll cause the other gems to be installed automatically. But for now, you have to install them all by hand, as we simply don’t have enough volunteers to keep everything up-to-date dependency-wise.
As we are currently alpha, documentation is a work in progress. If you want to get involved, please drop by our Google Group or our IRC channel, #sciruby.
Documentation for existing gems is scattered. You can look through the links below for additional information.
- Plotrb — This isn’t exactly a project page, but rather Zuhao’s Summer of Code blog. It’s got lots of useful examples.
Well, there’s always the blog.
