For building Studio-based applications you need a full OSA language component for that (appscript is just an Apple event bridge), plus a bit of judicious hacking of XCode to make it use Ruby instead of AppleScript.


There is a RubyOSA language component available at http://homepage.mac.com/philip_aker/osa/osa.html but it provides only limited functionality (load, save, compile and run), so isn't powerful enough for building Studio apps, though you can create Script Editor applets with it. For more advanced projects, I'd second Damon's suggestion of RubyCocoa.
