kamelopard: Ruby gem to simplify production of KML


This repository has been deprecated; Kamelopard is now hosted on Google Code as part of the Liquid Galaxy project. code.google.com/p/liquid-galaxy/

This gem simplifies generating KML files, especially those used by Google Earth. See code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlreference.html for information on KML. The KML reference will provide information on undocumented attributes from these classes.


It's probably best to use a fairly non-prehistoric verion of Ruby, as that's what's most frequently tested.


Install via RubyGems:

gem install kamelopard

From source:

rake install
