Use Ruby to talk to your XBee device

If you use XBee modules for wireless communication with your embedded devices and you'd like to use Ruby to talk to them from your workstation, then my xbee-ruby gem might help. Despite that it currently supports only a small subset of the XBee API Mode 2, it is sufficient for sending packets to and receiving packets from remote XBee devices. I use this gem on the server side of my Caretaker home automation system. The gem can be downloaded from and the source code is hosted on GitHub.
