What are your favorite IDEs for Ruby on Rails? Are there any good IDEs that IMMEDIATELY flag problems the way Eclipse does in Android development? Given the importance of testing, I'd like to use a tool that immediately and automatically flags problems.

Hi jason, There are several IDEs available for Rails development. You can try Aptana RedRails, JetBrains RubyMine. But most of the developer are following sublimetext , eMac, TextMate,Gedit,VIM i.e. light weight software. Hope this helpful to you. On Sat, Mar 16, 2013 at 10:10 AM, Jason Hsu, Android developer <

Most rails developers (I believe) recommend not to use an IDE, but to use a good editor with ruby parsing and project management capabilities (such as jedit, but there are many others) and to use the command line for the rest. An IDE just isolates you from the command line so that when something goes wrong it can be difficult to analyse. Also you will generally find it easier to get help if you are using the command line.

I've bought RubyMine. It has very convinient tools for working with code but better work with RM on fast computer.

We are using RubyMine. if i need something lightweight I use Vim or TextMate. RM has the ability to run the server, to debug and step through code, git integration - lots of great features. It's a memory hog (I boosted my Mac up to 16G RAM) but the newer versions have been better than the older ones. FWIW

I'm using RubyMine and it's great. Here is a video posted by a friend of Michael Hartl who compares RubyMine to Sublime Text if you're interested... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buQhf2OTTNk&list=PL... On Saturday, March 16, 2013 12:40:37 AM UTC-4, Jason Hsu, Android developer

Redcar completely suits me as a free highlighting editor with a good file browser and multiple display tabs and side by side editing.

RubyMine 5.0.2 Fabulous IDE, excellent value for money, superb debugging with code coverage and VCS integration, stack analysis, object tree view, model diagrams, db integration and lots more. I think the obsession with the command line just overwhelms you with detail, a bit like looking at the hex generated by assembler. Do not be fooled by this obsessive elitism. Give it a try free, also the support is really quick. John
