You know, I've been wanting to use Kepler for a long time, but it simply doesn't pass the "5-minute/3-command" test. I struggled through getting it working once before but can't even remember how I did that, let alone figure out how it all works now.
What you guys seriously need is something that's more than a list of the components Kepler has. That's fine, now i can read what each thing does, but the point of Kepler is that you've pulled these together to create something better.
I really seriously think you need to have:
* Getting Started -- From nothing to "hello world".
* Your First Application -- Building something non-trivial with Kepler.
* Deployment Guide -- One for win32 and Unix.
If there was just these three documents I could then get on my way to exploring all the remaining components. The only remaining thing is generating some kind of automated source documentation similar to Doxygen.
And hell, if I could figure Kepler out again I'd write the above documents. But I'm so lost after "./configure; make" that I can't go anywhere.
Anyway, advice from your friendly Ruby insider.
