[Ironruby-core] Open source project to port

For ImageMagick/RMagick, you should be able to get away with making an adapter that matches the API of RMagick or ImageMagic with the functions in System.Drawing. There will probably be more beyond that, but that should get you started.

No idea what the project would take. But, I'd be interested in contributing.

bummer :(
well, my idea was a pure imagemagick interface .net implementation, at least to some extent, exactly what the guys from rmagick4j did for java. with rmagick4j i don't need 10mb of imagemagick dependencies at all, its all pure java, and pure jruby.

do any of you have ideas as to how much effort such a thing would take ?

Yes but in my case it's to use in my book as an example of this is how you rubyfiy a C# application.

I do it to some extend with witty in my WPF chapter. I'm not thinking in the orders of magnitude of Hibernate or even ironrubymvc.  But it should be something fairly well-known.

I don't see much benefit in porting any of the testing libraries, mocking frameworks or dependency injection stuff but it would be good to take something that is familiar to many .NET devs I just can't think of any projects right now.

RMagick is certainly a very interesting library. The link below uses ImageMagick and mono so I imagine that could be a start :)

I would second that idea as well. I’d love to use ruby to port some sparkline and other BI visualization graph libraries, and a graphics library would be just the ticket.

and to add on that, a common pain i get with rails is an image processing library to stand in for rmagick (i use JRuby on windows on some projects, and they have rmagick4j which is very convenient), so that might be a good target.
