I'm interested in using Ruby for 2D games. I have to pick between Ruby/SDL and RUDL, both of which are Ruby SDL wrappers.

Which is better? Better means "less bugs" and "more usable," although the latter is a matter of taste.

I notice that Ruby/SDL was last updated in 2012 (according to SourceForge), and RUDL in 2010; other than that, I don't know much about either.

Please share your experiences, good and bad.

Kind of "Which technology to use?" isn't it? – Byte56 May 29 '12 at 19:43
Kind of. I see it more as "which of these two (seemingly dead) libraries do I use?" – ashes999 May 29 '12 at 19:55
Same thing, defined as one of the types of questions that are not a good fit for the site in the FAQ. It's a good question for chat though. – Byte56 May 29 '12 at 20:13
Okay. Your objection (and close vote) is noted. :) – ashes999 May 29 '12 at 20:34
