Abstract: Limelight is Ruby on the desktop. Build applications with multiple windows, or just one window. Take control of the desktop, or play nicely with the desktop. Create fun animated games, or productive business apps. Develop rich internet applications, or unwired apps to make you rich. Publish your apps on the internet, or keep them for you and your friends. Do all this, writing nothing but Ruby code, in Limelight.
