I create a console todolist app using KirbyBase directly, although I am abstracting a very simple framework.

You will be happy to know it uses ruport.
But you could make it easier to use KirbyBase with ruport by applying my patch :)

I think it would be interesting to see a simple Rails app that could also be accessed through a console.

    Cool, I'll have to check that out.

    We rejected the Struct conversion. The movement of the conversion code down into Record has been accepted, but it's awaiting tests. (We don't accept any patches without tests.) Though that's a discussion for ruport-dev, you might consider building a simple gem-plugin that extends Ruport to easily work with KirbyBase, that would rock.

    Simon Rozet, a student I am mentoring from the RubyMentor project, is going to attempt to do exactly that with Tracks. I sort of wrote this article with him in mind. :)
