I have no idea about examples in Ruby, but I'd say it should not be a
problem to create KML output in Ruby. First, I'd suggest to learn how to
construct XML tree in Ruby (I have no idea of this, because I'm not a
Ruby programmer, yet ;-)).
Then you can walk through the KML documentation and see what elements
you need to include in your output. KML is a dialect of XML.

FYI, the OGR library includes KML driver:
