YaST and Ruby

I don’t often post about Ruby anymore (that might be changing in the future … I’ll post more later), but this is a pretty cool story.

YaST (Yet another Setup Tool in the openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise world) just announced today that their Ruby rewrite is complete and has been committed. The project’s aim was to move YaST from YCP to Ruby to hopefully foster more community involvement in the development of the setup tool.

Here are the stats:

  • 4204 files
  • 594680 lines of YCP deleted
  • 724687 lines of Ruby added

That’s pretty crazy from where I am sitting. I’m just starting to pay closer attention to the openSUSE and SUSE communities, but this project caught my eye right away. Really cool to see it be committed for implementation in future versions of openSUSE and SUSE.
