    Both are Apple event bridges for Ruby; however, appscript is a mature, pretty much finished product that provides about the same level of flexibility, functionality and application compatibility, while RubyOSA currently isn't/doesn't. If you want, I posted a slightly longer comparison to c.s.m.p. about a month ago:

    The latest RubyOSA has addressed some of the easier issues since then (keyword arguments, osax and remote scripting support), but the rest still stand.

    I tried rubyosa in a rails app but it didn't work.

    rb-appscript works like a dream.
    and knowing Ruby its a godsend
    to script in ruby instead of applescript
