Hi all from a 30-year veteran, but rather a Ruby noob,
I’ve been looking around for a Ruby IDE, and came across the soon to
be released RubyMine. It looks to be a promising program, with a very
nice code reformatter.
One thing irks me: It doesn’t indent the clauses of a case statement,
but prints the 'when’s flush with the ‘case’ and ‘end’ keywords. This
complicates discerning the scope of the statement quickly. I went
back to ‘Programming Ruby’ and found the same formatting, which I find
My question is, how many of you indent when clauses? Does it matter
to you at all? Is there a package that prettifies Ruby code, even if
not in an editor, and is configurable?
