Locana is a GUI interface or GUI toolkit for the Ruby programming 
language. Locana requires the Ruby programming language 
<http://www.ruby-lang.org>.

Locana draws widgets such as text boxes, list boxes, edit boxes, 
buttons, check boxes, radio buttons, and combo boxes using a small set 
of methods defined in a GUI binding that talks directly to a GUI such as 
Windows and Tk. It also supports borders, menubars, popup menus, and 
automatic scrollbars etc.. It currently runs in Windows 
XP/2000/NT/ME/98/95 and on Tk.

Locana comes with a GUI Builder that allows you to create applets 
interactively.

Locana is freeware, open source, and is released under the same license 
as Ruby and requires the Ruby programming language.
