Can someone please suggest me a good visual editor for rhtml files?
Something capable to switch from rhtml source to preview in browser
(like dreamweaver)
Does exists some open source tool?
thank you all.

I am currently using the MyEclipseIDE with the Ruby and Rails plugins.
I
have also used Dreamweaver for more of a layout editor.

Same, I like MyEclipse with the RDT and RadRails plugins.  MyEclipse MAY
be overkill for you as it's geared mostly to heavy Java and J2EE coding,
but I do like the CSS and HTML editors (which I use instead of the
editors that come with RDT/Rad).  Of course, MyEclipse is highly
optional and you can just use Eclipse 3.1 with RDT/Rad.

Why not just use radrails or plain vanilla eclipse with RDT and RadRails
plugins.  What does MyEclipse offer that makes it worth paying for?

That's what the
OP was asking for... immediate visual gratification.

However, I would recommend to that poster that he push himself to edit
the source
directly. You get much closer to your markup that way and Rails makes
this pretty easy
since you can just make a little change in the rhtml and switch to the
browser and hit
refresh.

It can be really helpful to have an html editor that flags unclosed tags
though... which I
haven't seen yet for rails, er, actually that's another thing that
MyEclipse (I think)
would offer.

PS: I paid for MyEclipse for two years, but it's bugginess drove me
crazy. I just use the
Eclipse WebTools project now.

Because I'm a professional java/j2ee coder ; )  For $29 though, I think
the CSS and HTML editors in MyEclipse would still be worth the money.

My $0.02 anyway.
