Building GUI tools for Ruby SU

I want to know if there is any other tool enable building GUI for SU plugins other than web dialogue or standard tools bars

Only the very simple text InputBox. Look it up in the Sketchup Ruby API - Google for that.

HtmlDialogs introduced to replace WebDialogs in v17 are a very powerful alternative…

once we all work out how to use them well…



I’m considering a standalone executable program for my next project. It will communicate with SketchUp via a TCP socket. The benefit to me it being able to program in an environment I’m more comfortable with rather than HTML/Java Script. The downside is that separate apps need to be compiled for Windows and Mac.

Check out this thread for an example using a TCP socket.TCP Socket Example
